Park reopens after finding nails placed on trails

Authorities have reopened a popular North Carolina park closed after a runner impaled his foot on a nail that was purposely placed.

The park, near Ashville, NC, had been closed since the weekend when a runners foot was injured by a nail that someone had hammered into a tree root. A search turned up 40 nails hammered into tree roots and logs.

The park reopened Tuesday.

Someone hammered 4-inch long galvanized nails and left them sticking out one-half to 1 inch, and at an angle. One person was hurt and another stepped on a nail that went through his shoe but didn’t hurt his foot.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

Why in the world would some one take the time to do something like this?!
