Note Left By Tourist In Yellowstone Urges The Park To Start Training The Local Bears
The note below has gained national attention as it asks Yellowstone Park Officials to please train their bears better. The tourist spent a lot of money on their trip to the park and never saw any bears!
This is what the park posts about bears in the area:
“HABITUATED BEARS ARE STILL WILD BEARS AND CAPABLE OF INFLICTING SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. FOR YOUR SAFETY, REMAIN WITHIN YOUR VEHICLE WHEN VIEWING AND PHOTOGRAPHING ROADSIDE HABITUATED BEARS. ALWAYS PULL COMPLETELY OFF OF THE ROAD INTO PAVED PULL-OUTS WHEN STOPPING TO VIEW BEARS. MAKE SURE YOUR VEHICLE IS IN PARK AND THAT YOU ENGAGE YOUR EMERGENCY BRAKE. NEVER APPROACH, CROWD, OR SURROUND BEARS. RUNNING IN THE PRESENCE OF BEARS MAY TRIGGER A CHASE AND ATTACK RESPONSE. PROPER VIEWING AND PHOTOGRAPHING ETIQUETTE WILL HELP KEEP BOTH YOU AND ROADSIDE HABITUATED BEARS SAFE.”– THE NATIONAL PARKS SERVICE OFFICIAL BEAR WARNING FOR YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
