Milton Keynes gets a Halloween makeover.Vandals have given the world renowned concrete cows of Milton Keynes an early Halloween makeover and we think it's actually an improvement. They recently had a close encownter with a paint brush and the skeleton cows now look spookingly scary. We herd through the bovine that The Thames Valley Police are treating the incident as criminal damage. That’s just grazy talk if you ask me. It is estimated that repainting the herd will cost around £2000. “Public art is an integral part of the city and park landscape and as custodians of the cows we take damage of this nature very seriously,” said David Foster, chief executive of The Parks Trust. “The cows are a part of Milton Keynes, they are a piece of public art and they should be valued by all. We will restore the cows to the artist’s, Liz Leyh, original vision,” he told our reporter from Molly Media. The three concrete cows and three calves were made in 1978 as a leaving present from the Milton Keynes Development Corporation. Butter not laugh but the cows have had quite a past and have been stolen and held to ransom. They have had pyjamas painted on them and been covered in BSE graffiti. Also they have been placed in compromising positions and even been rebuilt after they were beheaded. The Trust has decided to leave the repainting until after Halloween as they have been inundated with hundreds of responses on Facebook saying they like the new design. If this was in a gallery it would be a modern wonder and worth loads of money but because it has been done illegally it's vandalism? World renowned statues, let's chew the cud over that one! Nah I don't think so, although maybe they are now!
