New York City Police are looking for four vandals who blatantly scrawled the words ‘F**k the Queen’ on Wall Street’s Charging Bull statue the day after Her Majesty’s death.

The offending message was written on the famous sculpture located in Manhattan’s Financial District on September 9 – just a day after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, aged 96.

The vandals – who appear to be two young men and two young women – used an “ink marker-like instrument” to deface the iconic bronze statue, the NYPD said.

The obscene words were etched into the Charging Bull’s forehead, police said. The graffiti has already been removed.

Graffiti is considered a Class A misdemeanor in New York and punishable by up to one year in prison.

The Charging Bull, also known as the Bull of Wall Street or Bowling Green Bull, has been a symbol of aggressive financial optimism since it was installed in 1989.

The famous bull has been vandalized on several occasions, including in 2018 when more than 130 sex toys were attached to the bull in protest against Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The sex toy protest was supposed to be a commentary on how Putin appeared to be in control of the US.

More recently, in October of last year, the bull gained some company on Wall Street. A statue of Harambe, the famous gorilla who carried a child who climbed into his enclosure and was later shot, was placed in front of the Carrying Bull along with 10,000 bananas.

The bananas were later donated to food banks and community refrigerators in New York City.

Those who placed the Harambe statue at that location said it was intentional, claiming that Wall Street had ‘gone mad’.
