I suppose every neighborhood has them: two or three impudent young thugs with more nerve than brains. If there’s trouble to be made or property to be vandalized, those guys will have a hand in it.
Since we live in such idyllic country environs, one would think that we wouldn’t have to worry about hooligans. Not so. Two yearling mule deer bucks, ruffians both, had the audacity to tear the bark off of five of our young quaking aspens one night this winter. The little twerps committed the crime right in front of our house, while we slept!
Hopefully, the trees will survive and the hoodlums will either reform or move to another neighborhood!
