Facebook User Bragging About Kicking Sheep Sculpture In Times Square?

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Bah, bah bad girl.

Days after a Brooklyn woman was arrested for allegedly decapitating a paper mache sheep sculpture with her foot in Times Square, a Facebook profile page surfaced with what appeared to be someone bragging about the incident.

Police reportedly arrested 22-year-old Taylor Galary Tuesday morning after kicking the installation. The display, by artist Kyu Seok Oh, features a flock of 24 sheep sculptures which was erected this week at the Broadway Pedestrian Plaza to coincide with the Armory Art Show.

Galary reportedly tried to flee in a taxi but was spotted by a Times Square Alliance public safety officer who quickly flagged down a police officer.

She has been charged with criminal mischief.

On Thursday afternoon, a Facebook user, under the same name as the suspect, posted an Antoine Dodson-style status update stating, “HIDE YO SHEEP HIDE YO LAMB.”

The post generated 13 “likes” and one user commented, “[W]ho’d have thought it was easier to make an escape on the subway than a cab….plus i lost a shoe!!”

Oh quickly repaired the damaged artwork — which took him 10 months to create the sculptures.

“This is not a museum, not a gallery — this is Times Square,” Oh told DNAinfo.

He said he prefers people “hugging” and “touching” the sheep. The installation will remain on display in Times Square through March 7.

    shame on you taylor, how would you like it if you put your heart into something and someone thought nothing of hurting your work, i’m sure your mother did not raise you to be like that, this will come back to haunt you it might have been funny at the time but someday you will not be laughing. grow up your not 2 but 22.

    These are obviously people with no respect for anyone else..
    No appreciation of the artists hard work to create it, nor respecting other people who appreciate art..
    For them doing something stupid so they can brag about it on FB or Twitter or You tube is more important than anything else..including common sense
    These people are the lowest of low class and should be given SUBSTANTIAL fines and or jail time…

  • Judge Rheingold

    Mandatory jail time. She must serve minimum 18 months.

  • Jen

  • Rebrites

  • Bruno
