The head from a bust statue of Queen Elizabeth II, located in Beacon Hill Park, has been spotted missing.
CHEK News discovered the statue of Her Majesty to be headless on Wednesday.
According to the City of Victoria, officials are aware of the missing head and it is currently being investigated.
Mayor Lisa Helps says that defacing public property is “completely unacceptable,” as the City works to learn more about the vandalism.
“It’s unacceptable, whether it’s the beheading of a statue or writing on the wall or etching of glass or anything it’s just completely unacceptable and it’s completely unnecessary,” said Helps.
Victoria Police chief Del Manak told CHEK News that any time there is vandalism in the city, it’s not good, calling the latest rash unacceptable.
