Swastikas found in Washington field


About 40 swastikas were found scrawled on hay bales in a field in Washington State.

A passer-by noticed the swastikas in a field off Interstate 5 in Marysville and reported them to police Sunday, the Herald newspaper reported.

“Hate is alive and well,” said Ellen Bovarnick, the regional director of the Anti-Defamation League. “Somebody or somebodies took the time to express what is the most virulent symbol of anti-Semitism that anyone can think of.”

By Monday, the bales had been rolled over and the swastikas were no longer visible.
