These cretins are destroying a sandstone formation known as the “Duckbill.” It is, or was, a popular landmark at Cape Kiwanda on the Oregon coast.
Park visitor David Kalas shot the video and reported that the vandals said “they did the world or Oregon” a favor because the rock was a safety hazard. Park officials originally thought the formation had come down on its own.
According to Oregon State Parks, the men could face hundreds of dollars in fines ($435 for destroying a natural resource) and possible criminal charges. We can only hope.
If all this looks familiar, you’re probably remembering the scout leader and friends who destroyed a rock formation in Utah’s Goblin Valley a few years ago. They too claimed to be saving lives by removing a hazard.
If we’re going to remove hazards, let’s start with these imbeciles.
