A taco shop wall, believed to be covered by the work of an internationally-known graffiti artist was tagged Sunday.

A white rat many believe to be the work of the British guerilla artist known only as "Banksy" popped up on the side of Bull taco in Oceanside Friday, according to our media partners the North County Times.

On Sunday, taggers wrote some letters on the wall to the right of the rat but the piece was not damaged and the tagging was painted over, according to the paper.

A documentary directed by Banksy, "Exit Through the Gift Shop," was nominated for an Oscar this year.
