Yellowstone National Park is a beautiful, yet dangerous place. Park visitors can and do get seriously injured or killed through their own stupidity and not following the rules.
The park and media are currently promoting "The Yellowstone Pledge" to make visitors aware of the park's rules.
According to KPAX:
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK -Yellowstone National Park has rules about approaching animals and leaving established boardwalks. Yet last year a man lost his life at the Norris Geyser basin and a young bison was killed because people didn't follow those rules.
Yellowstone is 2.2 million acres of photo opportunities but unfortunately, some who visit forget the animals are wild and the geysers are volcanically heated.
Visitors are now being asked to take “The Yellowstone Pledge,” an online opportunity to review the rules of the park while also keeping themselves -- and those uniquely Yellowstone features -- safe.To read more and to take "The Yellowstone Pledge", go here.
