Smugglers are using a disturbing symbol to mark their territory across the south.

And it's jarring everyone who finds one.

Border Patrol calls them "rape trees."

Smugglers have their way with illegal immigrants they're sneaking into the country, before hanging their bras and underwear from limbs.

Patrols say while they're finding "rape trees" more frequently near the Texas border, they can't tell if it means more women are being attacked.

There's already 27 cases of sexual assaults reported this year in the Rio Grand Valley area alone.
