Looters have ravaged an Acadian village in Nova Scotia. Good news: They were caught. Bad news: They will not be prosecuted because warning signs had not been erected at the site!

Charles Burke winced Thursday when he referred to the so-called pot hunters he found on the site of a former Acadian village here.

“These guys said they were just gathering artifacts as a hobby,” said the Parks Canada archeologist, with a disgusted grimace.

“Three hundred and seventy holes on this site is hardly a hobby.”
