All it takes is a few people to destroy something that others wish to enjoy.

Unfortunately some people arn't happy unless they can cause misery and mayhem to others..
I think hanging maybe a tadge drastic but a damn good thrashing with the birch would be ok..

They probably think shoes belong on telephone wires, not trees.

Why are they labelling the perpetrator(s) as vandals? It's quite possible that they could just have a shoe fetish.....

And the tree isn't even any good for firewood! Cottonwood burns fast, is stinky and leaves a lot of ashes.

Maybe they can carve the wood into... SHOE TREES! Then sell them to all the people with shoes that sit in the closet and need something to hold their shape.

A witness did in fact try to intervene, but the perps did not listen to him when he said "Shoo"!!!!! It actually encouraged them.
