Vandals are said to be responsible for the destruction of a topiary moose in Riding Mountain National Park.
The moose sat in front of the visitor centre in the Clear Lake townsite before it was recently moved to an intersection a couple blocks north.
The park shared the news on its Facebook page, saying the vandalism occurred sometime overnight Wednesday into Thursday.
“It always saddens us when property is damaged in the park but this one really hits home to our gardeners who have put countless hours into building this topiary to create a memorable photo op for our visitors,” the park said.
Photographs showed the moose leaning on the ground with its front legs bent.
Officials ask anyone with information to contact RCMP at (204) 848-2659 or 1-877-852-3100.
