Hamden, Conn. (WTNH) -- Some people in one Hamden neighborhood say a log has been dangling overhead on a set of power lines for quite a while and they want it taken down.
In local history books, Hamden's Ralston Avenue is known for unique architecture and tree lined streets. However, lately it isn't just the architecture that has been drawing in a crowd.
"Well a lot of people come past and they come staring, because they can't believe it," said Sharon Haskell.
Many like Haskell don't want their beloved avenue to be remembered for this.
"Take it down," said Haskell. "Have some sense of pride about your work, that's not a sense of pride."
Haskell says the town came through last week to take down dead or damaged trees, leaving this log dangling on the lowest wire in front of her home. Two smaller pieces are attached to wires above the piece of future firewood.
"People called the police, people called my house," said Haskell, "like I climbed the trunk and did that!"
Mayor Scott Jackson says he went by the site Tuesday and is working with utility companies to find out who's responsible for the cleanup.
"We took the tree down last week as a public safety issue, and immediately notified the utilities who have been at the site to survey," Jackson said, "and it's our understanding they are scheduling removal of those pieces as we speak."
That news would be music to the ears of Haskell.
"My concern: kids. This is interesting to them," Haskell said. "Let's stand under it and look at it for a moment."
One neighbor says she has seen crews out here repeatedly making a valiant effort on getting this down, but folks are still wondering when it will come down.
