Was it glued in place originally? You could just glue it back or cut it off to frag. I don't see any harm in either, but I'm far from an expert. Never owned one myself.

When you say detached you mean they fleshy part came all off and you are left with a skeleton and the fleshy part is floating around? Or did the flesh just disappear? To me that looks like a wall hammer skeleton.
