Little Bastards vanalized Little Goats favorite Park. Going to have to cut off a finger or two
Vandals used fluorescent pink and metallic gold spray paint to deface murals and playground equipment in the Dinosaur Park on the north side of Bozeman. It was the second incident of vandalism at the park in about a year.
Once again, police are after information about suspects who painted blatantly obscene images, hearts and “colored things in like a child,” Gallatin County Open Lands coordinator Mike Harris said Monday, taking a break from scrubbing one of the more offensive drawings off a climbing wall.
Harris said he discovered the graffiti Sunday when he brought his 6-year-old daughter to the park to play.
“It breaks my heart when they paint my little park,” Harris recalled her saying.
The playground was built in 2008 in the Gallatin County Regional Park by hundreds of volunteers.
Harris estimated the damage from both incidents to total between $3,000 and $10,000.
The vandals did a “paint-by-number” sort of job on three of the hand-painted murals, coloring a scenic river gold and painting bright pink ribs on a stegosaurus.
