In a surprising followup to THIS story, the petroglyph story was a hoax!
It appears a report of vandals damaging a giant rock in southern Alberta covered with historic aboriginal carvings was nothing but a hoax.
The rock, named the Glenwood Erratic, is located in a field near the village of Glenwood, about 100 kilometres southwest of Lethbridge.
A media report said old pictographs and petroglyphs had been destroyed, possibly with acid, a pressure-washer and an electric hammer drill.
Inspector Joe McGeough said Friday there was no wilful damage to the rock and there is no record of there being any native pictographs or petraglyphs at the site.

Police say they don’t know what prompted the report. Color me confused!
