A collection of life-size cows designed by Irish artists had to be taken off the streets of Dublin in July after vandals destroyed several exhibits.

More than 70 cows were placed on the streets of Dublin and Dundalk as part of Bailey’s Cow Parade 2003, an international exhibition which visits cities al over the world. However,, the first 10 cows placed in city-center locations were damaged so badly that organizers were forced to remove them.

“It’s so depressing, but not surprising.” Amy Wallace, account executive of CowParade Ireland, told the Irish Independent. “The awful thing is, we were kind of expecting it in Dublin.”

Meanwhile, also according to the Independent, a large fiberglass pig was stolen and damaged at the Galway Arts Festival. ♦
