Yellowstone Wolf Watchers Illegally Parked on The Grass


I first met the owners of this vehicle several years ago in Yellowstone, when I stopped to ask them what they were watching through their spotting scope. After being told rudely to be quiet, that I would scare the wolves they were watching, I spotted the wolves over a mile away. I could have jumped up and down yelled at the top of my lungs and wouldn't have disturbed the wolves.

These folks are members of a group of people that claim to be "researchers" and that turn in anyone to the rangers, that might get within half a mile of a Yellowstone wolf. They save parking spots for each other and if there isn't room to all of them to park in the turnouts, they illegally park on the grass as my photo shows them doing last fall in Yellowstone.
The man sitting in the chair in the photo above this one, is a part-time Yellowstone National Park employee and should be monitoring the people he guides around watching wolves.
