‘The end is near!’ Now-viral zombie statue must go after 3-2 vote

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – After a Nashville man’s homeowners association ordered him to remove his beloved zombie statue from his yard, it is now official.

In a 3-2 vote, Jim Grinstead said “the end is near” for Clawed, who has been a part of his yard for five of the 10 years he’s lived on Harbor Lights Drive.

Grinstead spoke to News 2 earlier this week when he received the letter, the first letter of which stated, “During a recent inspection of the community on April 19, 2016, it was noted that there is a zombie in your yard that needs to be removed.”

A specific timeline wasn’t given for the statue’s removal, but at the time, Grinstead said he planned to remove Clawed by the end of the week.

Sure enough, a recent vote sealed the statue’s fate. Grinstead plans to remove him by the end of the day Friday.

“Of course, we’re disappointed, but we got to meet many neighbors who stopped by to offer their support. We appreciate that and especially the board members who worked hard to keep Clawed alive. Clawed will be removed by the end of today and we’ll do our best to make sure he finds a good home,” he told News 2.
