Day three of the Pettry Bottom tree sit and all’s well. An excavator has been working nearby and people have been walking around, but no aggression. A small crowd has gathered at the edge of the mine to see the tree sitters. Word from security is that tomorrow will be a fun day.
“We are good. Security has been nice other than a few of them like to kick rocks off the berm,” tree sitter Laura Steepleton said. “I have a chipmunk tree friend and there has been a momma bear and her two cubs.”
Recent small updates include and eight and a half-minute audio recording from Steepleton talking about Department of Environmental Protection deception in its investigation of the slide and runoff that occurred in recent weeks near the tree sit. There’s also a two-minute video which is just below:
