Park rangers in Southern California are looking for the vandals, who scrawled an apparent “promposal” in a red rock in the mountains.
Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation officials took a picture of the word “PROM?” on the rock of Sandstone Peak in the Santa Monica Mountains on Thursday and posted on the social media, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“We’d love to hear about creative promposals, but the damage of public lands is not the way to do it,” said a spokesperson of the park wrote on her Facebook page.
The authorities have not identified any suspects in the case.
The breaking of the rocks in a national park might come with severe penalties.
Last year, a San Diego woman was forbidden to $524 million acres of federal land on the painting over a number of rocks in the various national parks. The woman pled guilty to seven felony counts and was sentenced to two years probation and a few hundred hours of community service.
