A group of environmental activists, calling themselves the ‘anonymous environmental activist collective’, released video of them vandalizing of Donald Trump‘s golf courses.
The environmentalists broke into the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, California and carved the phrase ‘NO MORE TIGERS, NO MORE WOODS’ near the fifth hole’s green. The course cost around $250 million dollars to build.
According to The Washington Post, the group snuck onto Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes in the middle of the night and used gardening tools to carve the words “NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS.” into the fifth green.

In a statement sent to The Washington Post, the group said the vandalism was carried out in response to the Trump administration’s “blatant disregard” for the environment. “In response to the president’s recent decision to gut our existing protection policies, direct action was conceived and executed on the green of his California golf course in the form of a simple message: NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS,” the statement said.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the department received a call for service Sunday morning about grass being dug up around hole five at the golf club. The spokesman said the department sent a deputy to the scene to determine whether the damage constituted an act of vandalism or whether it was accidental.
The message was carved into the green using gardening tools and took less than one hour to accomplish, according to a member of the group who discussed the project with The Washington Post on the condition of anonymity.
The 18-hole, 7,300-yard course that overlooks the Pacific Ocean was ranked as the 43rd best course in California by Golf Digest.
