06/ 09/ 04 First Victim - Romeo 23

/PRAGUE, 9. 6. 2004/ CowParade Prague 2004, an open air exhibition and a charitable happening is facing an unprecedented spate of vandalism. Apart from genuine interest and curiosity, the cows also stir insane and incomprehensible reactions.

Yesterday night somebody seriously damaged Romeo 23, the cow placed on námìstí Kinských in Prague 5. The sponsor of this cow is IRNERIO PRAHA s.r.o. Romeo 23 was decorated to evoke the notion of the legendary tank No. 23 that used to be displayed at a pedestal at námìstí Kinských before the Velvet Revolution. Nobody meant to insult the 144 000 soldiers of the Red Army who died during the liberation of Czechoslovakia, as the daily Haló noviny wrote. The only purpose was to come up with an original decoration and address those who find CowParade Prague 2004 interesting.

Bessel Kok, a co-owner of the CowParade Prague 2004 license said: 'Why don't people just take a look and smile over the colored cows? The cows help to make Prague more popular and at the end of the happening they will bring money for children's charities. I am very disappointed.'
