Well, it didn't take long before someone ruined the Banksy fun. LAist reader Wicks Walker said a portion where the security guard with the Jeff Koons dog was is gone. As in someone took a whole chunk of the wall. Compare the above photo to this photo here.

Wicks, however, notes the positive of this: "One good thing about this is that this really great piece being lifted will preserve it." And such is the life of street art.
