The Gnomesville Massacre

25 Jan 2007

Workers at a local tourist attraction in Australia are appealing for help after a gang of vandals went on the rampage.

Gnomesville in Perth used to be home to over 1,000 colourful gnomes, which were set deep in the forest.

However, many of them were smashed to pieces by vandals, with local newspapers labelling the incident 'The Gnomesville Massacre'.

'We are incensed by the damage done to the gnomes and willing to pay a reward to catch the culprits,' State Emergency Service Volunteer Association president Phillip Petersen told Reuters.

The reward stands at £200 for anyone who can shed any light on who carried out the vandalism which could potentially devastate the attraction.

Despite the setback, Gnomesville is slowly rebuilding its population and hopes to be back in full swing soon.
