$1,000 fine for Hoodoos vandalism





A man has been fined $1,000 for engraving his name in the hoodoos.

Jorge Edgardo Carrillo of Calgary appeared in provincial court in Drumheller on Friday, August 26. He pleaded guilty at his first court appearance to destroy or disturb a historical land site contrary to the Alberta Historical Resources Act.

The court heard that on April 20 of this year Carrillo was visiting the Hoodoos in Drumheller. He used a key to engrave his name, the name of his daughter, the date and the word Columbia into the second largest hoodoo at the site.
