Combating Park Vandals With Social Media
It is hoped that social media can help identify vandals who defaced facilities in Deschutes National Forest. Hikers from Prineville caught the perpetrators in the act, and asked them to stop. Their pleas were ignored, but one of the hikers caught the vandals in a photo. You can view the photo, and maybe do your part in tracking down the malefactors, through this Oregonian article: http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2015/05/prineville_mans_viral_photo_of.html#incart_river
