Point San Luis Lighthouse stairs vandalized with dog epitaph
March 14, 2013
An unknown person carved and painted an epitaph to a dog called Fisher onto the Point San Luis Obispo Lighthouse beach stairs prompting the Lighthouse Keepers to ask the public to help them find the perpetrator.
The stairs – built with funds from the Port San Luis Harbor District, Coastal Conservancy, and the Point San Luis Lighthouse Keepers – were vandalized with a message about a well-loved canine.
“In loving memory of Fisher, best dog ever – Schmoe, 6/9/1998 – 1/6/2013,” the person wrote.
The Lighthouse Keepers said they plan to have volunteers remove, replace and re-stain the 16 foot boards.
“We simply hope that by making this incident known, we will encourage everyone to help protect not only this public space, but all public spaces, that everyone contributes to for the good of us all,” they said in a press release. “However, if anyone does have information about who might have caused this damage we certainly would appreciate being contacted at (805) 540-5771.”
