The year 2021: Where people will do anything for a picture or video.

We live in a world where our phones are readily available if not already in our hands just waiting to be used. This is especially noticeable at any place that merits a good background for a pic or vid, which is pretty much anywhere. Sometimes even safety doesn't matter, when you want the shot you're going to do whatever it takes to get it and then throw it on Snapchat.

What is even wilder is the legal risks some people will take for a good social media post.


I would love to see the social media accounts belonging to an Illinois woman who is in trouble for a little incident at Yellowstone National Park. She's not just in trouble, she's in a whole bunch of trouble with special agents of the National Park Service Investigative Services Branch. I've never heard of the NPS but I would venture to say it's pretty serious.


Well, according to the rules at Yellowstone National Park, park regulations require visitors to keep a distance of at least 300 feet away from bears and wolves. She broke that rule BIG TIME. I would even guess she's lucky to be alive.

Someone got the encounter on video, park officials shared it on Facebook, someone tagged her a comment on the post. Boom, busted.
