Fisherman Damages a Petroglyph

Ancient Native American Rock Art

Fisherman Austin Ganey was fined five years of probation, a $10,000 fine and must serve 100 hours of community service for damaging an archaeological petroglyph on the Colorado River.


Ganey had been on a fishing trip on the river below Glen Canyon Dam in June 2010. While his trip was stopped on a beach, he hiked to the Descending Sheep Panel and scratched his name into the panel.

The Park Rangers noticed the etching right after his party left, they caught up with him and he admitted to committing the offense.

Kind of funny, I’ve heard stories of people who killed others and been left off with a lesser punishment.

While I believe Ganey was wrong, but I don’t think he should be fined $10k and put on five years of probation. Just a little too harsh if you ask me…
