Vandals Remove Stalactites at Popular Sequoia National Forest Cave
A visitor has discovered evidence of recent vandalism inside California’s Sequoia National Forest’s Packsaddle Cave.
Located in the Kern River Ranger District of the Sequoia National Forest, Packsaddle Cave is a popular hiking destination.
Although most of the cave’s stalactites are already missing from earlier vandalism, the U.S. Forest Service confirmed on Wednesday that recently more stalactites have been removed from the cave.
District Ranger Al Watson is asking anyone with information on incident to contact the Forest Service by calling (760) 376-3781 or 379-5646.
If apprehended, the vandals can face fines up to $5,000.
