Skunk, groundhog blamed for vandalism at Maine cemetery

ROXBURY, Maine (AP) — A couple of varmint vandals are hitting a small western Maine town hard.

A skunk & a groundhog have caused damage to three flat stone markers at a cemetery in Roxbury, a town with a population of fewer than 400 residents.

Renee Hodsdon, treasurer & tax collector, tells the Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/1RIXPM8 ) a man walking his dog discovered the damage — tunnels & disturbed earth near the grave markers — & reported in to town officials. One of the graves belonged to a veteran.

p>The town hired a trapper to catch the vandals & relocate them.

Now, the town must hire someone to repair the damage.

There was no word on how much the vandals are going to cost the town.
