This makes me sad. This very planting is where many of my Opuntia have originated, as well as many that I've given to friends. Our deal has always been that if it fell to the ground (via a careless passer-by or cold weather) I was welcome to pick it up. That's all I've ever done. Seems someone else may have been doing more.
Ugh. That's just rude.
