'When I worked at Humboldt Redwoods State Park, we used to joke that it seemed like tourists left their brains at home when they visited us,' a Park Ranger wrote on Reddit.
A recent thread had park rangers sharing the oddest things they've seen while working in the wilderness. While none of them have seen Bigfoot, they've seen tourists at their most unhinged. They bear witness to lots of poop, from humans and animals alike.
These tales are not for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach.
1. From portugese_womanowar:
When I was a ranger in Yosemite a few years ago, a tourist urgently flagged me down in a parking lot. I asked, 'How can I help you, sir?' he said, 'MISS RANGER, MISS RANGER! My daughter forgot her birth control pills on our camping trip. Do you have any?'
