What's the deal with all the vandalism lately? Why do certain people feel it's okay to destroy the property of others? Even at the height of my teenage rebellion years, the thought of vandalizing a tombstone never once crossed my mind. It's just dishonorable and disrespectful.

This particular incident happened days ago, but I just had to share it here in the hopes that more people will notice and the vandal(or vandals) will get caught.

The Stafford Hill Monument(so called because it's located on Stafford Hill Road) was recently vandalized according to the Cheshire Police Department on Friday. The monument has been a part of the local scenery for quite some time. It was constructed back in the 1920s.

Some critics would have you believe that vandalism is a victimless crime. I happen to disagree. And so do the police in Cheshire. They are looking for our help as they investigate this thoughtless desecration of property.

Cheshire Police are asking anyone who has information about the person(or persons) responsible to please contact them at the Cheshire Police Department, 413-743-1501.

There are other pictures showing the damage and vandalism on their Facebook page. However, they are asking that if you do know who's responsible that you do not post names to their post, but that you contact them privately. They appreciate it and thank you in advance. Hopefully, the vandals will be caught.

From grazing Tibetan antelope to migrating monarch butterflies, these 50 photos of wildlife around the world capture the staggering grace of the animal kingdom. The forthcoming gallery runs sequentially from air to land to water, and focuses on birds, land mammals, aquatic life, and insects as they work in pairs or groups, or sometimes all on their own.
