Someone has tampered with electronic road signs in the Dallas area again, according to KXAS TV.
On Sunday, a driver reported seeing a road sign that read “Gorilla deserved it.”
The alteration is likely a reference to the controversial death of Harambe, a 17-year-old, 450 pound western lowland silverback gorilla who was shot by zookeepers in order to save the life of 3-year-old a child that had fallen into his exhibit.
Sunday’s alteration marks the third time in eight days someone has tampered with the signs, according to KXAS.
TheBlaze previously reported that several other road signs in the Dallas area were also recently altered with messages such as “Donald Trump is a shape shifting lizard!!,” “Party Hardy Yall!” and ““Bernie for president”
I'm not sure this is what @TxDOT meant for this road sign to say... #Dallas @NBCDFW https://t.co/4iPldtM9gJ— Tim Ciesco (@Tim Ciesco)1464679712.0

And we have a third hacked sign - though I think this one is a little less divisive politically. #Dallas @nbcdfw https://t.co/TUp1Vj2M1G— Tim Ciesco (@Tim Ciesco)1464690614.0
KXAS notes that “tampering with such signs is a third-degree felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.” Those who notice suspicious activity near the signs are asked to contact the Texas Department of Transportation or their local police.
