New York, NY – New Yorkers woke to a disturbing sight after the controversial statue of Theodore Roosevelt outside the American Museum of Natural History in New York City was found covered with a blood-like substance in the early hours of October 26, 2017.

Police officers arrived on the scene and proceeded to cordon off the statue with crime scene tape since they were not able to determine at the time if real blood was used to deface the statue.

The outside walls of the museum with the carved words —scientist, explorer, scholar, ranchman, conservationist, naturalist— describing Roosevelt were also smeared over with the same blood-like substance.

Museum personnel were present waiting for the police to give the authorization to start the cleaning process.

According to the NYPD no one appeared to have taken responsibility for the actions and no arrests had been made.
