Vandals have defaced two of the lion statues at the south end of the Lions Gate Bridge on the overpass above the Stanley Park Causeway.

Looking at the photo you can see that the nose and paws of one of the statues has been damaged. The second lion didn’t do as well as the entire face has been broken off.

Police are investigating after two concrete lion statues in Stanley Park were vandalized overnight.

The damage was discovered earlier this morning after the vandalism was reported to city staff.

Police officers responded and discovered that two lions on the north side of the Stanley Park Causeway overpass were damaged.

“Investigators will be working with the Vancouver Park Board to ensure those responsible are held accountable for taking the roar out of these two lions,” says VPD spokesperson Sergeant Randy Fincham.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Vancouver Police Department at (604) 717-3321 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (888) 222-8477.
