THE hunt is on for the mindless thugs who left a harmless clown headless and legless. The victim was a statue called Clown Five that had been flat out on the roof of a car at Queensland's Goldstar Autos, Strathpine, promoting The Great Moscow Circus for the past six weeks.
Horrified staff found the mutilated corpse on Friday morning, Pine Rivers Press said.
"We are annoyed that someone would destroy something that is promoting a family event," said Goldstar Autos owner Brett Kennedy.

"The head and the leg were ripped off the clown," Mr Kennedy said.
"If it was just the leg he would get workers' compensations but he can't come along to work without a head.
"However he is on paid leave and he is really looking forward to coming back to work."
The motive for the attack is a mystery as Clown Five had no known enemies.
But his attackers might find they now have a powerful foe.
"He was a friendly clown, however he did have a dark side," Mr Kennedy said.
"I think he might be a clown that would turn into a ghost at night time."
Mr Kennedy was more worried about the impact on Clown Five's young fans.
"The kids loved seeing it and I'm worried seeing this could make them scared," he said.
"It's just not right."
The matter has been reported to police. Anyone with information can phone Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
The Great Moscow Circus has offered a substantial reward for the return of Clown Five's head, or information that leads to its recovery. Phone 3889 8516.www.heraldsun.com.au
