There were 10 horses painted by artists at the Langley Arts Council building last year, and they were sold to raise money for the arts in Langley and a facility for the arts.
One of them was Tattoo, which was set up with no protection for it, and no security cameras at Brookswood Park.
It was no surprise to me when vandals destroyed the horse by cutting off its head and legs [Vandalized horse leads to positive message, July 10, Langley Advance].
It is too bad that we have to guard against these things, but it is a fact of life, and to my knowledge, all the other horses that were purchased were brought inside at night, as a precaution, and were in public view in the daytime.
I donâ€™t get it. They do a repeat, and the same thing happens again.
Now they are going to do it again, just to prove a point to those darn vandals.
They are writing a book about bullying, and they are going to put that horse out there again? What are they thinking?
Vandals donâ€™t read the articles and learn a lesson; they love all the attention it is causing.
Volunteers put time and money into repairing the horse twice, and they are going to do it again?
Put the horse somewhere that is open, and take it in at night. Itâ€™s imple as that, and never mind all the nonsense.
