Safety Minute! — Follow the Rules — or Die!

Blast from the Past! — This post was originally posted on September 20, 2007 on Exit78  when we were visiting western Wyoming.  I am bringing it forward on Exit78 , along with original comments as a “blast from the past” post and because, in a way, it relates to a theme I will be addressing in a post I am currently working on. I am also cross-posting it here.

Dof off leash in Grand Teton National Park - Follow the Rules!The rule in Yellowstone and Teton National Parks is that all pets must be on a leash at all times, especially dogs.

Dogs have a tendency to chase after critters bigger than themselves, which can get them and their owner into BIG trouble — even death of the pet or owner.

This guy wasn’t following the rules.

A few hundred feet from where I saw the man playing with his unleashed dog, we saw this:

This bull moose had already gotten antsy earlier in the day with all of the people in the area trying to see it — gettin too close in the process — and nearly charged some of them, including a park service worker who was trying to keep people away from this one and an adult cow with a calf.

As well, yesterday (September 19, 2007), people had apparently been tossing rocks toward it to try to get it to stand up so that they could see it better — throwing rocks at animals is also against the rules.

Imagine if that dog had caught wind of Bullwinkle.

Not following the rules in the wild can be dangerous — and deadly!

Those lower tines on those horns look kinda sharp!

When we made it to Ayers Natural Bridge, we found it was the centerpiece of a very nice county park.  We had a picnic and spent about an hour in the park. Unlike most natural bridges formed by water… (Read more at Ayres Natural Bridge on Exit78.)
