The owners of this lovable pink elephant, which temporarily graced DUMBO's Archway plaza under the Manhattan Bridge, are bidding a fond goodbye to their floppy-eared creation.

Here’s the good part: If you can pick up this wooden sculpture yourself, it's free to keep.

The elephant’s owners add, “Plus, wouldn't it be cool to take this elephant out on a joy ride all the way home?”

But there is a dark undertone to their posting on Craigslist: “It'd be sad to see our pink friend go out a different way.”

Uh oh.

Anyone who ever wanted a pink elephant better get on their stick and reply to the post at

The elephant was exhibited in the 2013 Dumbo Arts Festival in Brooklyn. The owners did not respond to a request for comment by press time.
