This is a few weeks old, but it’s an interesting story if you haven’t seen it. In short, Troy Paiva of Lost America was out shooting in the desert near Helendale and stumbled upon a huge cache of rotten food bank leftovers that had been unceremoniously dumped in the middle of nowhere. He posted a Flickr photoset of the dirty deed, and MSNBC and the OC Register both picked up the story. It turns out it was left behind by an unscrupulous pig farmer who had been receiving shipments of Second Harvest’s nonconsumable foods (because generous corporations and donors love to donate already-expired food), and left it behind when he was evicted from the land. Now Second Harvest is just waiting on permission from the land owner to clean it up. Seems to me like the pig farmer that left it all behind in the first place is getting off easy.
