The partial government shutdown is yet another trial for the park's caretakers, two- and four-legged inhabitants, vegetation, and neighbors whose livelihoods depend on a vibrant and fully accessible park.

There will always be the bush-pigs (no offence to the wildlife) who have absolutely no regard or respect for anything & leave their filthy waste everywhere BUT as in this case there will also always be good decent people who will volunteer to clean up after the POS's!!!

Many thanx to the volunteers slaving away at Yosemite National Park!

Shameful to read of the way people can and will be slobs. Showing no respect to the Earth that they walk or live on. I was brought up to pick up after myself and not to litter. Wish all others were taught the same.
Thanks Freya

Shameful, nature/wildlife should not pay for humans' stupidity, greed, etc.!
