The Cape Kiwanda sandstone pedestal, a feature of the Oregon coastline known to locals as the duckbill, was "toppled intentionally" by tourists. Video captured at a distance by visitor David Kalas of Hillsboro shows a group of people heaving and pushing the rock until it falls to the ground and collapses: "Got it!" one shouts.
Here's the before shot:
And here's the after shot, courtesy of the state of Oregon:
"I asked them, you know, why they knocked the rock down, and the reply I got was: their buddy broke their leg earlier because of that rock," Kalas said. "They basically told me themselves that it was a safety hazard, and that they did the world or Oregon a favor."
Kalas says once they toppled the rock, they stood on the crumbled sandstone, snapped a few pictures and left.
"They were just standing on top of the rubble of the rock, laughing, smiling, giggling," he said. "I just want them to learn a lesson you know, because if they do this here they will probably do it elsewhere."
Just think how dumb you have to be for blaming the rock you fell off.
