Our national parks are places where nature is preserved – and nature can be dangerous.
We have been away from news internet service for about 4 or 5 days.
A while back, I subscribed to press releases from the National park Service. While going through those that had accumulated, I noticed that there were several fatalities . Then, while I was putting this post together, I was told about bear maulings in the Yellowstone area.
Nature can be dangerous.
Some people get hurt or killed because they don’t follow the rules.
Sometimes, though, natural events are the cause. The bear maulings near Yellowstone appear to be very unusual, where no one did anything wrong. It appears to be a rogue bear.
