The concrete cows of Milton Keynes, which are iconic sculptures created in 1978 by Canadian-born artist Liz Leyh, have been painted over with a skeleton motif in an act of vandalism that coincides with Halloween.
This is not the first time the cows have fallen foul to vandalism as over the years, they have been transformed into zebras, painted pink and even had pajama bottoms added.
The investigators at the Private Detective Service are often asked to look into cases where vandalism or thefts of public and community property have taken place. It can be difficult to take preventative measures against this type of crime in rural locations. However CCTV can be fitted in remote places and patrols of the area by either a security company or volunteers can help prevent vandalism.
Individuals can ensure their homes are kept safe during Halloween by ensuring that all doors and windows are locked. Burglar alarms can also help keep homes secure over this season’s events, including the run up to Christmas and New Year.
A spokesperson from The Private Detective said:
“Although we can see the funny side of this pre-Halloween prank on the Milton Keynes cows, it is no laughing matter. The cost to put these cows back into their original state is estimated to be in the region of £2000. The herd is looked after by The Parks Trust Charity and the money spent on repainting the cows could have been spent elsewhere within the parks”
