Bruin Campus Mascot Statue Vandalized with McDonald’s, USC Colors

BruinBreaking news out of Westwood, where the UCLA Bruin statue has been found splattered with gaudy ketchup- and mustard-colored paint. The protective casing, which is applied each year in the week leading up to the UCLA-USC rivalry football match, was apparently easily cut through by the vandals. We’ve been saying for years what they need is an advanced infrared laser defense shield around the statue, not the flimsy picnic tarp they have been using for protection. Maybe now they’ll learn.
