The tank painted with the words "This looks a bit like an elephant" was towed from the field along Pacific Coast Highway on Friday, says Ted Soqui. The crayola shooter on the wall of the Urban Outfitters in Westwood Village also disappeared in recent days. They're still on the Banksy website.
* Added: Guy Adams, L.A. correspondent of The Independent, saw the towing operation occur and found out a little about it. "When I stopped to ask what was going on, one told me that the owner of the land, a gentleman too miserly to have removed the oil tank when it represented a piece of derelict trash, now intended to flog it, to the highest bidder."
