I have heard of some people wiring it up to the battery and jolting the sumbitch who puts their mitts on it, but have no idea how it's done. Conversely, you could always cut up and then embed some razor blade tips in the outer ring portion of the wreath part of the emblem (hey, get creative!) and then follow the trail of blood/chunks of digits, back to the 'perp.

Or, you could always do what I did to my '88 Deville. I removed it off the hood, filled in the hole and put a larger emblem in the centre of the grille "a la concours". Problem solved and more than a few nut-scratchers and nose-pickers wondering what type of Sedan DeVille I have,,,,,,seeing as how they never made an '88 concours,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Not sure what year you have, but on my '91, the hood ornament is connected to the horn (and it's the "trumpet" horn that sounds like a pissed-off church organ). I think it's factory.
