Vandals have struck a new light at Sharon's Veteran's Memorial Park and Beach designed to keep geese away, Recreation Advisory Committee Chairman Gary Bluestein said Monday.
The incident was reported to Sharon Police at 3:44 p.m. last Thursday, according to the police log.
"Unfortunately this was our fears in installing a unit that is easily accessible but it was worth a try," Bluestein said.
"The Rec Dept I am sure will look at and decide how to proceed whether with a new one or another method such as fencing or chase dog."
Recreation staff installed the AwayWithGeese units at the Memorial Park and Community Center beaches earlier this year.
The 26-inch high units emit light that will "deter the geese from congregating" at the two beaches, Town Administrator Benjamin Puritz said in March.
