I don't buy it's legit hunters, sounds more likely it's some one with an axe to grind with Google.

I'd sooner bet on "idiot teenagers with rifles who have nothing better to do" than actual hunters or anyone with a google grudge.

Just maybe it's a covert team of M$ fiber-line assassins.

They wouldn't be thinking it was all that funny if Google sent their own team of "hunters" to shoot out all those hillbillies cable right before the big Nascar race. Hell, google has enough money, they could pay to have the race blacked out in their area. How well would that go over?  Just imagine a full page add in the sunday paper "Dear residents of Dalles, the next time someone takes aim at our fiber towers we will black out Nascar races in this area for a month. Thank you. -Google."

Not everyone who goes out shooting is a "hunter".  How many true hunters go out and shoot up their old computers instead of truning them into something cool or usefull.  Maybe it's microsoft employees that have been paid by Bill himself to go out and "accidently" damage the competition's infrastructure. ;)

The city is called "The Dalles"-- note the definate article.  I think "The Dalles" is French for The Rapids or some such thing.

Also, a quant is something you wear.  A city might be considered "quaint".

Ok well go to the local government and put your foot down: tell those dumb*** 'hunters' to knock that crap off or else be slapped with a few hundred thousand dollar fines and jail time.
