I’m not sayin’ it was aliens, but it was aliens

A post one might rightly expect on a nice, relaxed Sunday evening

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — [A] father and son pulled up at the ranger station with a bison calf in their SUV. “They were demanding to speak with a ranger,” …. “They were seriously worried that the calf was freezing and dying.” … “They sincerely thought they were doing a service and helping that calf by trying to save it from the cold.”

[R]angers were called and the father-and-son tourists, who were from another country, were ticketed. [T]he rangers followed the pair back to where they had picked up the bison, and the animal was released. [story]

This is prob’ly the story a fish tells its chums after it’s been caught and released.

    I fully expect the park rangers now to install bathroom heaters on behalf of concerned fathers with bi sons.

    Another upnote, OT:

    The calf was rejected by the herd, and euthanized later. Don’t mess with the wildlife. Freakin’ retards ….

    A few years back we were on a remote hike that took us from the forest to the beach and came upon a deer giving “birth” on the beach, and obviously things weren’t going very well. It was one of the most heartbreaking things to witness and made worse by a couple of fucking morons trying to “help” by trying to pull the calf out…….

    Tourons.

    We could not call tourists, tourists.
    We had to call them visitors.
    And we did call them visitors when they (or management) were in hearing distance.
    But the real “special” ones were known as tourons.
