Local News

NORTH SIOUX CITY, S.D. (KCAU) – A local nature park was hit with another vandalism in late August.

The archery range at the Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve was vandalized for the second time around 11:37 p.m. on Monday, August 23. 

The center posted on their Facebook page security footage of four people responsible for the incident. 

“There was a couple of 3D targets. One was our coyote target and the bottom jaw of the coyote target, somebody kicked that out. And then we had a very large deer that was taken and removed from the area,” said Jody Moats, park manager at Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve. 

Moats said the stolen deer cost around $600. 

This is also the second time the center has been vandalized this year. After the first incident, staff decided to install security cameras in case another would happen again. 

The nature preserve is working with local law enforcement to find the group responsible and hold them accountable. 

They’re asking the community to contact either the visitors center or the Union County Conservation if they have any information.
