JOINT MITNOR CAVE, BREAK IN AND THEFT OF ARTEFACTS
« on: September 17, 2015, 11:17:20 am »
An email recieved from DCUC!

I have been asked by Alan Finch, secretary at the Pengelly Centre, to let you all know that Joint Mitnor Cave and Reeds Cave were broken into lately and certain artefacts such as the elephant tooth were stolen. The Police have been informed and I met with them on Sunday when we spent an hour at the site. Richard and Alex will be checking out Reeds Cave later today. Devon Wildlife Trust are working with us to improve site security and we will be working with the Natural History Museum in London to replace some artefacts but it is a bit like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. In the meantime I would be grateful if the caving community can keep an ear to the ground and see if any strange objects pop up for sale.

There is a Rhino molar  for sale on Facebook.  Is this the missing tooth?
