Six Men Cited For Disturbing Old Faithful

May 14, 2009, 6:23 am

Rangers have cited six men for walking on Old Faithful–and two of them for urinating at the geyser–after someone outside the park reported seeing them on a live park webcast. The six men were cited for going off trail and into the geyser area last week. Park rangers also cited two of the men for illegally possessing a piece of a park natural resource, and two for urinating at the geyser. All six are scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate. The park has a camera aimed at the geyser 24-hours a day with video streaming over the Internet.

The images from the webcam are available here.
