(For those who don’t know it, the word ‘touron’ is an amalgamation of ‘tourist’ and ‘moron’. It’s a fitting description of most of those portrayed in the video clips below, IMHO.)
We’ve already seen more than one incident where tourons at Yellowstone National Park learned the hard way that bison are not pets.
And, back in 2015, a touron actually wrote to the administration about their lack of trained bears.
Now comes news that the park is nearing its capacity for vehicles and visitors. (Some would say it’s already exceeded its capacity in practical terms.)
I have a suggestion. Why not operate a lottery? Every vehicle entering the park should be allocated a number. Every hour, one number will be drawn at random, and the occupants of that vehicle get introduced to bison and bears at halitosis range. In exchange for the injuries and deaths that will undoubtedly result, they get to park for free. The other tourons get to watch and take pictures . . . until the next drawing, an hour later, when they may find themselves providing the entertainment.
I reckon that wouldn’t take long to reduce tourist overcrowding quite satisfactorily, don’t you?
