Yeah, they've been doing the same thing in the Lamar. It's disgusting and I wish I had the power to fire whatever idiot is responsible for it.

Well that is sad. Too bad there is not enough wilderness to relocate him far, far, away. Thanks for the update.

He'd been relocated once, up to the Fishing Bridge/Lake area of Yellowstone, but he made his way straight back to the Tetons. I think they should have taken him to the Lamar.

Re: Tetons on way to YNP May 2021

Sounds like a great visit Tim.
Unfortunately, the male pair of those two subadults you were watching (one of 610's cubs) was killed by Wyoming Fish and Wildlife a few days later after getting into the garbage in a residential yard near Jackson.

Re: Automated Trolly Service

Ideally, I'd like to see a free bus service taking people from parking lots at Mammoth to other parts of the park like Old Faithful, Lake, Canyon, etc... It would cut down on the car traffic.
