First let me say that it is not ever recommended that anyone remove anothers cache, as long as it is intact and within the general area of the posted coordinates. I can see where if this were this to become acceptable practice, many folks with a different opinion of what "acceptable" containers and conditions are, would be moving and changing caches that did not belong to them. This of course would be disastrous to the sport.
Now while from your description, this cache may certainly be in need of a visit by the owner, I think that hiding it in the area of the givin coordinates (and based on description on cache page) would have been more appropriate. When posting your "Find" log making mention of this would then allow the owner may check up on it. An email to the support@ email of the listing site would also be good in cases where a cache was pillaged (strewn about) or otherwise cause for concern.
By the way, I do not even see this listed in our database, could you please respond via the Contact Us page with the correct cache name.
