[at-l] Our wild national parks

Yes . . .  I once lived in a "jungle" and a snow leopard visited and paced
the veranda outside our open, boarding room, door . . . .

Idiots are born every day in every land and often they think themselves
experts . . . .

Who was the idiot who passed himself off as an expert in grizzly bears and
for all his expertise got himself and his girlfriend eaten by grizzlies?

Was the hiker who got himself gored by a wild billy goat an "expert"? in
wildlife? in Goats?  in hiking?
The goats were hardly "natural" having been introduced less than a century
ago . . . . And apparently this goat had already proven itself a danger if
not merely a nuisance and the park rangers were already aware of this goat
and its reputation?

And all this is the fault of lawyers?
