Video: Teenagers Caught Destroying Iconic Rock Formation
OutdoorHub Editor: Keenan Crow 09.06.16
Every now and then, Mother Nature likes to show off and create astonishing works of art like the “Duck Bill” or “Thor’s Fist” rock formation along the coast of Oregon.
I am FLOORED that a group of idiot visitors came and destroyers a landmark here for their own sense of enjoyment. This is one of the few places I hadn’t gone to, been to the Cape often but it never worked out to make it to Duckbill Rock. Now I never will be able to. I hope these guys get named and charged. #capekiwanda #duckbillrock #pnwonderland #pnw #oregoncoast Photo cred repost: @emilymiley

It’s unfortunate when groups of kids have to come along and act like these hooligans in this video. According to KATU News, a man reported seeing the vandals trying to tip over the rocks, and initially laughed to himself, then he saw the formation shift. He happened to be helping a friend film parts of the coast with his drone, when he caught these idiots doing this:
The iconic rock formation was a popular tourist attraction, and was a great spot to take photos. It got its name because it literally looked like a duck, and the fact that it was in Oregon only added to the irony.
This group of tough guys might be in a bit of hot water now, because The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department takes vandalism pretty seriously. The department will review the incident and decide how best to take legal action.
