Practice for removing another historic monument or statue .
Is my guess. You know a dry run, as it were.

My guess is that this will end where some other government entity/department removed the sotne for whatever reason. I suspect it will be the left hand not knowing what the right hand is donig, all while wasting more government resoruces to figure ourt it was a non event.

Ah, the mystery deepens.
From your opening post ...\\

Park officials say they suspect the boulder was taken using heavy equipment since it was so heavy.


Being someone who has moved 2,000lb plus boulders by myself with the help of a come-a-long and a tilting 5'X10' tilting trailer, I had to laugh.

The boulder has been returned. Apparently someone heard of their mistake.

If you think about it, what the hell is someone going to do with such a distinctive rock...………
Can't put it in your own front yard, it'll be seen reported and to court you'll go.
Break it up into gravel? Much easier ways to get gravel.

I guess you could put it in the neighbors yard, you know, the guy that constantly annoys ya. Just don't get caught doing it.
Oh, better use someone else's equipment to accomplish that task. LEOs know how to check out rental places.

Pretty much a silly thing to do but, if stealing rocks gets your rocks off, go for it.
Edited: It could be used as a Dock Anchor and you might get away with it till the water level drops.

I'm thinking someone just thought "Rocks are rocks and free for the taking", then turned on the TV and realized they were in big trouble.

Unscrupulous landscaping companies (and sometimes home owners) will go out looking for nice large rocks for their yards. Guy I know living out in the desert had several large rocks taken off his land without permission while he wasn't there.

Some testing to see if paper really beats rock?

What have we learned from this fiasco? That we should never take our natural beauty for granite!
