The Victoria Police Department are searching for a man who allegedly vandalized several pens in the Beacon Hill Park Children’s Farm Petting Zoo last night.

The male allegedly broke into the zoo after 9 a.m. Sunday night, turning on hoses and leaving the water running, which flooded several pens.

The owners of the zoo are assessing the damage, but were able to open this morning after a substantial delay.

No animals were injured during the break in.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male between 20 and 30 years of age and is roughly five foot nine inches tall. He has a slim build and curly brown hair, and was last seen wearing blue jeans, no shirt and a dark ball cap with a white triangular logo in the front centre.

He also has small cross-style tattoo on his upper right arm.

If you have any information on this incident or know the man, call the VicPD non-emergency line at 250-995-7654 or through CrimeStoppers.
