Yellowstone wildlife to receive citation for excess violence

Shamelessly repeated from Yellowstone Tour Guides FB cos. it made me laugh so much ...

"06/11/13: We were talking to a ranger yesterday who said a guy approached an elk within 5 feet and got chased in Mammoth yesterday. The guy then went into the visitor's center to file a complaint about the wildlife being too aggressive."

Simon, I read that this morning as well. Had a mouthful of coffee and almost lost it all over the screen! Poor rangers....

Last week I was shocked by the ignorance of some people who were trying to get photo's. Saw one woman posing less than 5 feet from a mature bison with her back to him. So many think these are tame animals and have no idea how dangerous they can be!

One more day until I am there for the first time. I am so excited.

This is the kind of stuff that scares me to the core. That I would have to sit by and watch some fool do something this stupid and endanger, themselves, their kids and the animals.

You just can't make this stuff up.

Would have liked to be working that Desk:

"Could you give me a minute sir, I have to go in the back a get an Aggressive Elk Complaint Form"

"Do you think you could pick this Elk out of a lineup?"

"We have a problem right now. All of the Elk lookups are full and Federal Regulations prohibit us from housing more than one Bull Elk per cell"

And finally "Let me guess - you have a Phd in something or other, right?"

That's too funny! We live in the Black Hills and were out and about this weekend and I couldn't believe how close people were getting to the buffalo. STUPID.
