A Funny - Why Can't We Feed the Bears?

Why Can't We Feed The Bears?

The following views are actually suggestions and comments that have
been received by the National Forest Service from visitors to our
Nation's parks...

- "Need more signs to keep the park pristine."
- "Escalators would help on steep uphill areas of the hiking trails."
- "More families would enjoy the parks and city children could
learn more about nature if the Parks Department would provide
services that include arcades, water slides and child care."
- "A big hotel with a golf course and even a convention center
would attract more people to this natural beauty."
- "Instead of a permit system or fees, the Forest Service needs to
reduce worldwide population growth to limit the number of
visitors to the wilderness."
- "Trails need to be wider so people can walk while holding hands."
- "All the mile markers are missing this year."
- "We found a smoldering cigarette left by a horse."
- "Many trails need to be reconstructed. Please avoid building
ones that go uphill."
- "Too many bugs and leeches and spider webs. Please spray
wilderness areas to rid them of these pests."
- "Please pave the trails so they can be plowed of snow in
the winter."
- "Chair lifts need to be in some places so that we can get to the
wonderful views without having to hike to them."
- "The coyotes made too much noise last night and kept me awake.
Please eradicate these annoying animals."
- "It would be nice to have the Kodak scenic markers so we could
identify the photographic sites."
- "I like all the trees but you need to plant some flowers. Flower
gardens would be so pretty in the forest."
- "The giant trees are spectacular but there are too many of the
same kind; you should plant different types, for variety."
- "Reflectors need to be placed on the trees every 50 feet so people
could hike at night with flashlights."
- "You should have a petting zoo here so that the children could
touch the squirrels, deer and bears."
- "I was stung by a bee; you should have warning signs."
- "A McDonald's would be a nice sight at the trailhead."
- "The places where trails do not exist are not well marked."
- "Too many rocks on the mountains."
- "A deer came into my camp and stole my bag of chips.
Is there away I can get reimbursed: Please call... "


  1. Since I live in a "wilderness" this is really funny and typical of Flatlanders!

  2. I agree with all of the above, especially about the escalators. The last time I went up Mount Everest I got very tired before I reached the top and almost ran out of breath. Thank goodness there's a Taco Bell on the summit.
