MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) - Officials at Grand Teton National Park are asking for the public’s help in finding whoever spray-painted graffiti on the inside wall of the historic Luther Taylor homestead cabin.

The cultural site along the Gros Ventre Road between Kelly Warm Springs and the eastern boundary of the park was defaced sometime in September with a black and blue spray-painted depiction of a devilish creature wearing a crown.

The graffiti has since been removed, although evidence of the damage remains.

The site was originally homesteaded in 1916 by John Erwin and purchased by Luther Taylor in 1923, who built a cabin and outbuildings. It appeared in the 1953 western film Shane, starring Alan Ladd.
