TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Eight cactuses at Saguaro National Park’s west district in Tucson have been slashed or cut down in an act of vandalism, according to park rangers.

They said the slow-growing cactuses were damaged around Oct. 3 and left along the Scenic Trail.

The saguaros ranged in height from 1-10 feet (about 3 meters).

Rangers would like to hear from anyone who visited the Scenic Trail, Passey Loop Trails or the Scenic Drive Trailhead around Oct. 3 and might have information about the incident.
