I noticed some holes in the woods behind my house and checked the video footage on the security cams I installed recently. I was surprised to find two different bamboo shoot thieves walking around less than 15 feet from my home searching for bamboo shoots on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The first one dug up whatever he could find including one growing behind my house.

The times were very early with the Saturday thief showing up at 5:13 and the Sunday morning thief roaming around at 5:33. Both of them left the area before 6:00am.

I don’t know what’s wrong with these people. They can buy bamboo shoots at the supermarket if they want them.

タケノコ泥棒

家の裏の林に穴が掘られたことに気付き、最近設置した防犯ビデオ記録を調べた。

家の裏の5メート以内にタケノコ泥棒が写っているにはびっくりした。土曜日と日曜日の早朝両方に泥棒が歩き回って地面を調べていた。1人が家の裏のタケノコを掘っているのも写っていた。

時間は土曜日の5:13と日曜日の5:33からで、どちらも午前6:00まで去って逃げた。

このような人の頭はどうなっているかは分からない。立入禁止の林に侵入して固いタケノコを掘り、犯罪を犯している自覚はないだろう。スーパーに買えるなのに…
