Authorities in Georgia are trying to figure out who put googly eyes on a historic statue last week.

According to a Facebook post from the City of Savannah, someone put googly eyes on the Nathanael Greene statue that stands in Johnson Square. Police were called to the park on Thursday afternoon for a trespass report.

“It may look funny but harming our historic monuments and public property is no laughing matter,” the city wrote in the Facebook post. “In fact, it’s a crime.”

The city’s post quickly went viral and now has thousands of reactions, comments and shares.

WSAV reports that the googly eyes were removed and did not appear to cause any damage. The City of Savannah is asking anyone with information to call police.

According to the Visit Historic Savannah website, Greene was one of America’s top Revolutionary War officers, second only to George Washington.
