Who would steal flags from Civil War graves? Authorities in Hudson, New York believe they have found the culprits in a rash of cemetery flag thefts.
The thieves are... are you ready for this? Woodchucks.
Police used cameras and confirmed that the flags were in the woodchucks' burrows.
Around 75 flags were reported missing from Civil War graves in the days leading up to and following Independence Day. The flags apparently are coated with a substance that attracts woodchucks.
