(Wyo.)- Vandals Strike Plants At Cheyenne Botanic Gardens
Police are looking for the vandal or vandals who slashed the tops off of hundreds of plants at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens.
Rick Parish, director of Cheyenne Parks and Recreation, tells KGWN-TV that Tuesday night's vandalism caused about $3,000 in damage. He adds that employees initially thought the damaged plants were annuals, which are relatively easy to replace. But they soon realized many were woody plants and trees.
Parish says "that's where our cost is going up."
