So ... someone spent dozens of hours on their hands and knees uncovering this thing. They used soft-bristle brushes, puffs of their own breath, and the most delicate of low-impact hand tools to preserve the artifact while it was being excavated. They allowed no one near the item except highly trained staff so no damage would occur.

Then when it didn't fit in the chopper they smacked it over a nearby boulder to make the pieces shorter?

Kinda like me taking some scrap lumber to the landfill ...

Did that part seem unlikely to anyone else?

I think it is unlikely - that’s why it took so long for it to happen.
