A dairy farmer in China says vandals destroyed about 10-thousand dollars in crops after holding a party on his fields.Spencer Aitel owns Two Loon Farms and grows hay and alfalfa to feed his cows. He says Saturday a group of people parked on one of his remote fields, started a bonfire and started drinking.They left behind a lot of trash, but Aitel says tire ruts from all of the cars that pulled in did the most damage. At least two acres of fields are flattened. The vandals also abandoned a truck that state police have now impounded.Aitel says “We’re not really out to nail anybody to the wall. We just want to make sure the access that we do allow our neighbors is wisely used. All we’re looking for is a little cooperation and this sure wasn’t a good example of that.”In a normal summer, Aitel would have already harvested most of the crop that was destroyed. But that work’s been delayed because of the rain. He says he’ll try to recover what he can of the crop.If you have any information in the case, you can contact Maine State Police at 1-800-452-4664.
