New housing construction in the Sierra Nevada Foothills
Valley Springs, California, U.S. - The Earth Liberation Front (ELF) appears to be responsible for vandalism in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. A window was broken and the letters E-L-F were spray-painted on the garage door of a partially constructed home at a site on Loera Hills Road in Valley Springs. There is considerable opposition to new development and the required re-zoning in rural Calaveras County, where Valley Springs is located. The ELF regularly commits acts of vandalism and arson to protect the environment from urban sprawl.
