TOWN bosses in Ronda have slammed ‘mindless’ vandals for damaging a statue of a bull that took pride of place in the Blas Infante Gardens.
Described as a ‘charm’ and popular tourist attraction the bull has had to be sent off for repair after the vandals damaged the leg of the statue.
It will cost around €4,300 to repair the statue, which was created by sculptor, Nacho Martin.
The mayor, Isabel Barriga, said they were keen to get the bull sculpture repaired and reinstated as soon as possible because it was one of the most recognisable images in the town along with the New Bridge and the Bullring.
