PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — Officials with the Prescott National Forest say someone cut a lock into a meadow that was being restored as wildlife habitat.

It happened July 4 and 5 just south of the Woodchute Wilderness near Jerome.

Officials say a vehicle left ruts several feet deep throughout the 10-acre meadow.

Officials had been removing trees encroaching into the meadow, and trying to keep livestock and vehicles out to control soil erosion.

They say the break-in has caused significant damage around the wildlife tank and the meadow. They're looking for whoever is responsible.
