Local media says the piece was destroyed by bulldozers to make room for roads. But here’s the thing, it’s illegal to willfully destroy an ancient monument.
Now an investigation is underway to see how and why crews mistakenly thought the monument was something else.
And because the piece sat on private land, archaeologists are urging police to take action against both the landowner and contractor.
It seems much like that Mayan calendar that predicted the end of the world, this Mayan piece is just ruined, too!
