broken Sambuca

Some idiot has managed to trample all over my "this season planted" sambucas last night while relieving themselves on the way home from the pub in an area of may garden which has open public access!
Ive tidied up the plant this morning [and washed my hands!], cutting back the trampled sections with nice clean cuts... but I'm looking at whats broken and left over, and it seems such a shame to just ditch these healthy stems to the compost heap... is it too late to make softwood cuttings from the remnants, and if not... how do I do it? I love the foliage of this plant and would certainly find other places in the garden it could be used.
