The Daily Evergreen at Washington State University reports that Kappy Brun, the campus grounds supervisor, plans to deter tree thieves this Christmas season by spraying “a special skunk spray” on the school’s pine trees.
The smell is not noticeable outside but becomes stronger as the trees warm up inside . . .Well then, how is a thief supposed to know that he’s cutting down a tainted tree?
Or is this just an olfactory bluff by Groundskeeper Kappy?
