Civil Disobedience at Grand Teton National Park

Protestors at Grand Teton:




For the video, see here.

“We were parked close to a GTNP road barricade due to the Government Shutdown of all our National Parks. As I was taking pictures of the Bison this young Bull started using the barricade as a scratching post. He started on his left side but soon after the one side of the barricade fell to the ground. This picture was taken right before he decided that his back needed scratched also and then of course the whole thing falls down and of course everyone watching him was rooting & cheering him on. I told my husband my husband that even the Bison were upset with the Government Shutdown.” –

A fitting symbol to go with the Grizzly.
