PUBLIC LANDS — They're at it again. As though it's a rite of spring for lame brains, some four-wheel drive enthusiasts are ripping into soggy national forest lands for a few thrills that will leave ruts and plant damage for years to come.
Some of the most serious offenses are occuring in Idaho.
Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest law enforcement officers are asking for any information pertaining to the mudbogging damage in the areas behind Fish Creek Campground and the Milner Trail.
Last weekend, jerks a full size vehicle bypassed the posted sign and mudbogged in the creek behind site #8 at Fish Creek Campground. They created a diversion in the main stream course and broke down the stream banks to flood their playground.
Another mudbogging site (above) was also found off the Milner Trail where extensive damage occurred in a meadow.
