Those responsible for the theft and vandalism of a public art display at UMass Dartmouth over the weekend remain on the lam.

In an email to students, Chancellor Divina Grossman said a display of sculptured sheep that had been set up by first year students on the campus' quadrangle had been vandalized Friday night, and a black sheep from the display had been stolen.

UMass Dartmouth spokesman John Hoey tells WBSM News Chancellor Grossman condemned the acts in the email as a show of a support for the 16 creators of the display.

Hoey says the black sheep was found within two shakes of a lamb's tail in the stairwell of a nearby residence hall.

The sculpture professor, Stacy Latt Savage, removed the display after the vandalism.

Hoey says the incident remains under investigation.
