Another encounter with open holes at a park - shovel-meatheads

August 28, 2018 11:51AM
I will not call them detectorists, for they are not. More detecterrorists or vandals with a shovel. This is my second encounter this year with the evidence that they are here, but I have never seen them out and in destruct-action. I was returning home today,from a couple mile walk, with my dog, and we stopped at a local park to get some water for him. There they were, large, open holes 10-12 inches across, with sod broken up and dirt thrown all around the open holes. A single beaver-tail tab was lying along side one of the holes. There was too much scattered dirt to clean up without tools, so I walked home and came back with tools and a water jug, put everything back together as well as possible, and watered it heavily.

If this keeps up, we will have local parks off limits, just like the county ones already are. Wish there were some ideas of how to prevent stupid/lazy from detecting at all.... and from owning a shovel.angry smiley


photos attached. trowel used in the clean up the is about 8 inches long. I could easily have put a gallon jug in the largest hole.
