Police are looking for vandals who damaged the iconic lions statues on the north end of Vancouver's Lions Gate Bridge.

The Vancouver PD says one lion's face was destroyed and the other's face and paws were removed, and investigators have responded to the original report to city staff, from Saturday morning.

"Investigators will be working with the Vancouver Park Board to ensure those responsible are held accountable for taking the roar out of these two lions," said the department's spokesperson, Sergeant Randy Fincham.

Anyone with information on the vandalism is encouraged to call the Vancouver Police Department at (604) 717-3321 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (888) 222-8477.
