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.
