The Yorke Peninsula’s iconic Teddy Bear fence has been hacked apart by vandals.

Andrew ‘Cosi’ Costello started the fence which is now home to 2,000 bears stretching over a kilometre from Paskeville to Kulpara.

In a Facebook post, Costello accused "childish" vandals of targeting the fence in the wake of the controversy, saying some of the bears appeared to have been cut open with knives.

"People are slashing the teddy bears on the teddy bear fence and throwing the stuffing around the road to make it look like it causes huge mess," he said.

Despite the incident, the fence has received an overwhelming amount of support from the community with close to 11,000 people signing the petition to save it!
