What about a well known photographer cutting off a tree within a national park to get an at nest shot? As the gentleman concerned denies doing so and I have not enough proof to withstand a libel suit I'll not name him.

When shown the nest of a Spotted Catbird he said that it was no good to him as the hides he had with him would not let him get high enough. A week later the tree had been shortened by a metre and a half, tied with wire to its stump and had branched trimmed.
