The slogan "Perham 08" is now visible in letters composed of withering brown grass on the Frazee High School football field.

In a report sent to Perham police from the Frazee Police Department, the vandalism was estimated to have occurred sometime around May 12. The person(s) responsible for the slogan is believed to have used some sort of chemical to kill the grass and create the letters and numbers.

The vandalism was photographed by Frazee police on May 22. The word "Perham" is slightly more difficult to discern, with the "08" clearly visible on the field.

A Frazee officer measured the wording, finding the "Perham" lettering to be 19 feet long and six feet tall. The "08" was 20 feet long and 11 feet tall.

A damage estimate has been reported at $500 to $1,000.
