On 4th of October 2017, a monument to an anchovy was opened in Novorossiysk. During the WW2, fishing saved the city residents from starvation. According to the local media, this is the only monument to an anchovy in the world.
However, just in a couple of weeks, residents of Novorossiysk began gradually stealing pieces of the monument, as souvenirs.
To protect the monument, local police had to set up 24 hour video surveillance.
