A Thai woman believes she has done no wrong after a video surfaced showing her with a group of tourists walking around a fragile, off-limits thermal area at Yellowstone National Park.
“No, I didn’t violate any rules. Had I broken a rule, I would have received a warning from park officials,” she said in a phone interview yesterday with the Thai Channel 3 Tieng Wan Tun Hetkarn TV programme.
The woman is of the belief that the area was not dangerous because the warning sign was very small.
“Had it been dangerous, there would have been a big sign or fence to prevent tourists from going into the area,” she said.
In the video you can clearly see a sign that reads: “Danger. Fragile Thermal Area. Stay on officially marked and maintained trails.”
There were no reports of any of the Thai tourists being arrested.
