This is the most disgusting and depraved act imaginable - vandalizing gravesides.  When I read the headline, I was immediately incensed.  And then I read the whole article

According to, this case is already closed, but it's an interesting story. I guess 75 little "Old Glories" were stolen from a Civil War gravesite in Hudson.   They used special cameras, and let's give technology some credit here, because they closed in on the bandits - WOODCHUCKS.

I guess the flags were found in the woodchuck's burrows. They figure that they have  some chemical on them that attracts the rodents. This story made national news, by the way.    So at least this one has a happy ending (although I wish we could find more patriotic animals. I want to see their birth certificates!)
