Yep. It appears to be a bug. Bad location for anyone coming to town wanting a picture next to it.

“Oddly placed.”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

This monument is in the middle of an intersection. It's kind of pretty, though, worth driving by if you're in Enterprise.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

I live in Enterprise and happened to have to drive downtown for some errands. As I drove by I thought to myself , there are actually people who are interested in seeing this attraction. It is the only monument in the entire United States that honors an insect. First of all, the monument is directly in the line of traffic. You can't stop and get pictures, without the risk of getting run over, literally. The statue is surrounded by a small "fountain" that hasn't had water in it for years. The town has actually put up a "Weevil Cam" to watch the statue 24 hours a day, due to the insect on top of the statue being stolen at least 5 times. They would be better off spending the money on cleaning and fixing it. Just my opinion
