Stolen Petroglyph Returned Home in Nevada
More people behaving badly with antiquities: a Nevada real estate agent stole a petroglyph from the desert (picture of some bighorn sheep) and used it to decorate his front yard. An alert sherrif's deputy was there to serve some unrelated papers and said, "Hmm, that thing probably isn't legal." Too bad the article gives no background on the petroglyph's actual origins, just the deputy's speculation that the thang is "well over a hundred years old." Good guess.
