The Boils Wildlife Management Area in Jackson County Continues to be Vandalized

The Herald Citizen reports that, for three consecutive summers, people have vandalized the Boils Wildlife Management Area in Jackson County, Tennessee.  The vandalism includes damage to signs and the parking lot, littering, theft, and the destruction of habitat. Not only are these actions costly to taxpayers but they also harm wildlife, including fish and other aquatic creatures.

As a defense attorney, I understand that the people doing this probably are not bad people.  They are most likely kids that don’t understand the damage they are causing.  Thus, I encourage everyone to talk to their friends and family about the importance of maintaining our wilderness areas.  Perhaps, if people understood the effect that these actions have on wildlife, they would be more thoughtful next time they visit the park.
