Chemical Weapons

The 130+ year old live oak trees at Toomer's Corner in Auburn, Alabama have been poisoned with massive amounts of herbicide.

Let me say, first of all, that this crosses the line of college prankery in the worst sort of way. Especially considering the lethal doses of poisonous herbicide used on a landmark where Auburn fans doubtless take pictures with their young children.

When they catch this guy or guys, I hope the full force of the law is brought down against them.

Update: Looks like they have a suspect in custody.

This is terrible.

They managed to save part of the Treaty Oak in Austin after it was poisoned, but it took a blank check from Ross Perot and it still never looked the same.
