Vandalism found in Petroglyph National Monument

ALBUQUERQUE >> Graffiti and other vandalism have been found in a section of the Petroglyph National Monument in west Albuquerque.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that monument Superintendent Dennis Vásquez and a supporter of the monument were exploring a section of the monument last week when they found debris, evidence of campfires, motorcycle tracks and graffiti.

The monument has thousands of samples of ancient Pueblo Indian rock art and it’s managed jointly by the National Park Service and the city.

City crews have started removing litter and debris and restoring sections of downed fence, and Vasquez said the Park Service and the city will work together to remove the graffiti as quickly as possible. (source)
