It really pisses me off that I'm writing this post but the new Mt Terrible Hut has suffered its 1st bout of vandalism after it was rebuilt from the ground up nearly a year ago. In their infinite wisdom some moron took to the benches inside the hut with a chainsaw and used them for firewood! I mean FFS REALLY? There's absolutely no shortage of firewood around and this lazy, selfish, irresponsible prick/s goes and does this!

As a member of the volunteer team that assisted DELWP in the build it really pains me that someone would do this after the effort that was put into this hut for EVERYONE to enjoy it. DELWP & Police are investigating.

It's a dam shame they knew how to use the chainsaw properly...
it's a shame alright, Swaggie and Neat60, if they knew how to use a chainsaw properly, they should have walked 100mt's or so and get it from the bush,
it really pi$$es me off when brainless idiots do this to a brand new hut, that many great men, volunteered their time and effort, and money to builld this hut for everyone to use, give me 5 minutes with them and they would be wishing they hadn't done it.
there just seems no reason for it, who in their right mind would even think about cutting the benches up.:mad::mad::mad:
i could guess, but i might get myself banned for here, ;)

I was being sarcastic meaning cut off one of there own limbs instead, I totally agree with your method, the courts will fail us time and time again, probably already on bail or one of a series of good behaviour bonds...

I've helped build a hut, it would feel personal if an asshole vandalised it...

A lot of time and effort went into getting the hut to the approval stage due to the vandalism the old one suffered. It was thought that if it was built brand new using quality materials it would be looked after. Whilst it’s reprehensible to us that people would do this after all that effort, DELWP and all the volunteers are 100% committed to keeping this Hut looking its best for everyone’s enjoyment!

Can we get an update on when this was done and any other info? I am on a facebook page of Troopies with over 5,500 members and I would like to post something. It will then go around and maybe someone will talk.

Hard to put an exact time on it as DELWP or our group was last up there on the 2nd of September. The damage was found after Melb Cup weekend so if anyone was there anywhere between those two dates and could say it wasn’t like that it could help to narrow it down. It would make reviewing CCTV much easier? Did I say CCTV? Yep I did...
