For their part, the Gardner police said in a Facebook post that they thought it was pretty damn funny.
“We would like to sincerely thank the persons responsible as it made our day when we pulled up what we expected to be hundreds of pictures of coyotes, foxes and raccoons. Thank you to the citizens who noticed the cameras. Your effort and sense of humor are greatly appreciated.”
I’d like to think that this is just how people in Kansas naturally behave at night.
