The Hudson Police Department has been investigating some un-American activity at Cedar Park Cemetery. Last week, a total of 52 American flags were stolen from the tombstones of Civil War veterans.

Police initially assumed a bunch of punk kids were the culprit. It turns out they had the wrong species.

Mounted cameras on trees caught the suspect – a bitch ass woodchuck. Apparently the little fuzz balls have been consuming the flags as a late night snack.

How many flags would a woodchuck snag if a woodchuck could snag flags?  A lot.
