(CNN)   Dear Park Rangers, I am a Yosemite Junior Ranger. I went to Yosemite recently and accidentally brought home two sticks. I know I'm not supposed to take things from the park, so I am sending them back. Please put them in nature. Thank you, Evie   (cnn.com) divider line 66

bikerbob59: brap: Anyway, thanks for being a Junior Ranger!  I have enclosed a new Smokey The Bear STOMP OUT FOREST FIRE BADGE, which being plastic sickens me.  Don't even get me started about the benefits of fire in revitalizing the ecosystem.

FOR THE LAST TIME, IT IS NOT SMOKEY THE BEAR!  IT IS SMOKEY BEAR!!!
/GGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH


Smokey (the) Bear is National Forest Service, which is run by the Department of Agriculture. National Parks are Department of the Interior. You generally won't find Smokey in a National Park.

dukwbutter: Will the last person to leave Fark for Reddit to read these posts a day earlier please turn off the lights?


Thank you.

/worse yet, the link is to a CNN article citing the Reddit post. Fark, the third name in recycled "news."

Benq: The ranger posted this on Reddit originally.  He mentioned that he'd take pictures of the sticks in different locations in the forest and send them to Evie to decide where they should ultimately end up.


Oh, ffs, maybe sequestration will stop such nonsense!

sure haven't: Since I have no faith in the USA, I'll assume she was arrested.


damn right! and she's now on the no-fly list, her emails & cell phone transmissions are being monitored, and the house across the street from her parents (you know the one with the gaudy off-blue shutters that's been in foreclosure?) - well, worry no more. a team of agents just took up residence there as a 24 hr observation post courtesy of your tax dollars. they are putting together intelligence files on her, her parents, her siblings and her cat as I type.

USA: we don't take crap from cute little kids.

This is fake! That letter looks like it was written by at least 3 different people.
Maybe she has Did (Dissociative identity disorder)?

Sure.
I suppose you're also going to insist that it isn't "Bugs The Bunny" or "Mickey The Mouse" either...

/Winnie Pooh?

"Smokey Bear" sounds like an off-brand line of Appalachian Jerky Treats, I'll stick with THE Bear thankyouverymuch.

Actually Pete calls him Mickey the Mouse all the time.

/Damn kids

We were taught to leave nature better than we found it by picking up any trash we found.

Leave only footprints, take only pictures.

Good for the little girl, it was a very nice gesture.

20 Years Later....

Dear Rangers,

One fine summer day I was happily enjoying the beauties of the park when I suddenly met an attractive ranger. One glance and we both knew we were made for each other. I immediately undressed and dragged him into an area shaded by tall trees and fragrant grass. We lay down and made love. Out of excitement, Mr. Ranger seemed to have released his river of love into my lake of birth. I am now pregnant.

I didn't want my parents to find out so I had the little fetus aborted. It is now attached to this letter, well preserved. I hope you can hang it up on a wall and give me an award later. Feel free to put it in a museum or showcase so as to teach the visitors the importance of contraceptives while making love.

Evie

Awesome.  I was a junior ranger.  I'm gonna go update my linkedin right now!

Pocket Ninja: If removing sticks from national parkland constitutes some sort of grave offense, my dog is one of the most wanted creatures in the nation.


Well, dogs are known for making bad decisions all the time - it's his fault, not yours.

ha. This reminds me of some of the wacky stories about the volcano goddess in Hawaii putting a curse on people who take stuff from the national park. Supposedly people have taken pieces of lava and other souvenirs, had bad stuff happen (coincidentally) and sent them back weeks or months after their vacations to avoid further calamities.

Of course, the park leverages this superstition to the fullest extent to discourage people from collecting.

Is this wrong?

The True Story

The kid was torturing animals with them and kept them as a memento.

You don't want them or the kid back.
