In one recent incident, US Park Rangers in Yosemite National Park are investigating vandalism along the Chilnualna Falls Trail. At around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14, rangers received an anonymous tip that someone had vandalized rocks along the trail. The reporting person said the graffiti was not there when they left earlier that day.
The unknown suspects wrote "I came, I saw, I vandalised National Park Property" and signed "Phyllis M" and "Kino 16."
Investigators would like to speak with anyone who may have information about this vandalism. If you were in the area that day, please contact us.
