Red Rock Vandalism
Red Rock Vandalism

AIR DATE: December 6, 2010

Someone vandalized prehistoric art rock panels at the Red Rock Lost Creek Park with spray paint. Authorities are worried that some of the damage may be permanent. Parks across the country have always dealt with the issue of vandalism of rock art and theft of artifacts. Does this mean these areas have to be protected? What will it cost to clean up the damage?

In addition to determining if this can be cleaned up in any way, maybe there should be a permanent plague installed at the site. It could describe what was actually lost by this senseless, ignorant act. I am sure the idiots returned to the scene of the crime. If they could actually "read" as well as they scrawl maybe a sense of guilt could be bestowed upon them. What a waste.
