Officials at the Gettysburg National Military Park are trying to find out who went on an apparent relic-hunting digging spree this past weekend.
They say that someone dug 23 little holes in the area around Spangler's Spring on Kulp's Hill.
"We don't like people digging holes on the battlefield," Park Management Assistant Katie Lawhon said.
In fact, the law prohibits anyone from digging on the grounds of any national park. Doing so could get you a fine of up to $100,000 and up to 10 years in jail. It is illegal to even possess a metal detector on park grounds. That could get you a fine of $75.
Park officials hope someone could give them a tip that could help them catch the human gopher that dug the holes.
"The Saturday close to the battle anniversary was a pretty heavy visitation day," Lawhon said. "It's possible that this took place at night when the park was closed."
