Using fox urine to prevent campaign sign stealing

Posted: Updated:
WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Kelley McDonald of West Bloomfield is fed up. Four times now someone has stolen a Romney-Ryan campaign sign out of her front yard.

She has some evidence on who the culprit might be from the video recorded on her home surveillance system.

She thinks it's a West Bloomfield Township employee.  The car driven by the thief appears it may have a city logo on it, although it's not totally clear.

She plans to file charges and police in West Bloomfield say she has a case.  She is also offering a $500 reward for information on who stole the signs.

And guess what else.  Kelley has a little surprise for the next person who puts their paws on her campaign signs.

She is dousing them with fox urine.  "I don't know what fox urine is used for, but we poured it all over the signs so at least when the next person comes to steal it, there's an unpleasant smell all over their bodies." says McDonald.
