Just weeks after activists staged an alternative tour of the American Museum of Natural History to call for its removal, among other things, the equestrian statue of Teddy Roosevelt was vandalized early Thursday morning. The base of the statue, which is maintained by the city’s Department of Parks and not the AMNH, was splattered with red paint sometime between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m., police said according to the New York Post. Authorities said surveillance footage showed at least one person near the statue during that time.
