The latest whiz kids

I admit to a certain difficulty trying to determine a motive here:

Imagine going to Walmart only to find that what you need is off the shelf. Not because it’s out of stock, but because it’s been soaked with doe urine.

Arrest and booking reports show that the damage amounted to more than $2,500.

I mean, who carries this stuff around? Besides deer, I mean, and they get rid of it as quickly as they can.

Police said Cody Hudson, 18, and Jon Ohlman, 24, sprayed doe urine on toys, fabrics and shoes inside the Walmart near East 96th Street North and Highway 169 in Owasso.

I’m guessing the culprits, nabbed right across the street, were not exactly fawned over.

    Fined twenty-five hundred bucks? That’s a lot of dough. Anyone who does something like that has a lot to antler for.

    And why Walmart instead of Sears Roebuck?

    When I was working night stock at the local Mart of Wal that’s how I knew deer season was coming up. Happened every year. You can buy the stuff there.

    I figured, like jsallison said, that they spotted it on the shelf, decided, “Wouldn’t it be funny if….” and then proceeded to ruin the days of several wal-mart employees. (And perhaps those of some shoppers who made a special trip to get whatever item was then off the shelf.)

    I dunno. I tend think in cases like this, the punishment should fit the crime, like maybe they be made to live in small apartments with the stuff they sprayed. And not be able to crack a window.

    They must have destroyed quite a bit of merch, if it was $2500 worth at a wal-mart.

    They should be thankful the cops got to them before a rutting buck did.

    I have shopped in that Walmart. Not often – only if I go somewhere else in Owasso or Tulsa and just happen to think of something I need at Walmart.
