The Bureau of Land Management is seeking your help regarding vandalism to a Native American rock art panel on public lands in the Paradox Valley.  The vandalism occurred around January 1st. The vandals carved “AFS,” “SDT” and “Happy New Year’s 2014” into the rock panel.  A BLM archeologist says the rock art panel is between 2,000 and 4,000-years-old, and is considered sacred by Native American tribes. The estimated restoration cost is at least $4,000.  If you have any information contact BLM Law Enforcement 240-5341. A cash reward is being offered.
