SHAME ON ROCK ART VANDALS!

It's hard to understand why anyone would want to vandalize a wonderful, ancient Indian rock art panel near Vernal, Utah. This panel was in the Barrier Canyon-style rock art that has ghostly-looking human-sized figures with no legs.

Bureau of Land Managment(BLM) officials are puzzling out whether this particular site was on government or private property which will dictate which agency investigates the vandalism. If on Federal Land, the vandalism is in violation of the Archaeological Resources Protection Act (ARPA) and there will be an agressive investigation. Utah also has similar legislation. Anyone who has information about the vandalism should contact the BLM's Vernal field office at (435) 781-4400.
