TUCSON, Ariz. -- University of Arizona officials say a bronze sculpture on the Tucson campus has been vandalized.
They say the 12-foot tall bronze of four bobcats has been covered with yellow spray paint and the letters ``ASU.''
The vandalism comes just days before the annual football game in Tempe between the UofA and archrival Arizona State University.
Last week, the white hillside ``A'' in Tempe was covered in red paint, which is one of the Wildcats' school colors.
The Arizona Daily Star reports that ``The Arizona Wildcat Family'' sculpture has been displayed for the last decade on the Alumni Plaza near the campus mall.
The artwork shows a male and female bobcat and two kittens lounging together. The sculpture was created by a Tubac artist.
