A Man has claimed responsibility for painting over Paignton's iconic Milk Bottle, and leaving a severed pigs head outside a branch of McDonalds.
A Facebook page by user Itchier Itch claims responsibility for both acts, and he has uploaded photos to prove it.
The pigs head was left outside Paignton McDonalds last week, complete with a hook in its head, leaving staff distressed.
The Milk Bottle, which represented Loncombe Dairy at the site since 1902, was painted over without the owners permission on Monday night.
The Coca Cola bottle has split residents, with some seeing it as a welcome act of art, and other nothing more than vandalism.
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said that neither incidents had been reported to them.
Itchier Itch posted: "To those of you who this may of offended, I will be returning the milk bottle to normal after Christmas."
He added: "After seeing some reactions, I feel it's important to add that this wasn't the original milk bottle, the old bottle was in fact made of wood. It was burnt to charcoal in 1997, a local builder castes this one out of concrete, it hasn't been painted for a long time, as a result the paint was chipping. No sweat."
The bottle was in fact replaced in 1997 after an arson attack, it was also made fire proof. The bottle has been repainted since 1997 and is a fond favorite among locals for helping people with directions.
The bottle and the building is owned by charity Kidzade.
Manager Claire Corley said: "We left work as usual and it was fine, then we came in on Tuesday and it had all changed. We couldn't believe it. I have no idea who did it, people though we had done it for Christmas.
"Kidzade directors Andrew and Rachel David are away in Bulgaria at the moment, so we have taken a photo to show them. We aren't sure what will happen to it now".
Paignton's popular Milk Bottle building, at the corner of Cecil Road, is one of Torbay's most iconic spots.
The Milk Bottle used to be the main dairy serving most of Paignton.
The bottle was set fire to in 1997 and a flame proof replacement was made.
