If you're looking for another reason why we simply can't have nice things, just look towards New Salem, where some jerks graffitied Salem Sue.

It should come as no surprise that those who decided to write on Salem Sue's legs and udders couldn't come up with anything better than '________ was here,' according to The Bismarck Tribune.

Unlike other reports of graffiti in the area, however, the graffiti applied to Salem Sue isn't reported to the Morton County Sheriff. Instead, members of the New Salem Lion's Club simply scrub the graffiti off.

Salem Sue, located in New Salem, is the world's largest Holstein cow, standing at 38 feet high and 50 feet long. She cost more than $40,000 when she was built back in 1974, according to Wikipedia.
