“Blucifer,” the famous blue horse statue that sits on the route to Denver International Airport was vandalized with graffiti earlier this week.

The iconic Mile High City statue cost the city a total of $650,000. Its official name is “Blue Mustang.”

According to Denver International Airport, a tip came in from a local news station at about 6:00 p.m. Thursday, September 6 that vandalism had occurred. Upon investigating the giant 32-foot horse sculpture, orange graffiti lettering was discovered on both legs.

The Denver Police Department is currently investigating this strange case of vandalism.
