An Idaho Falls man has been banned from Yellowstone National Park for two years after allegedly trying to cook chickens using a hot spring in a thermal area. News Week reports three suspects were cited on August 7th after a ranger received a report that a group of 10, including a child, were hiking towards the Shoshone Geyser Basin with cooking pots. They were found by park officials with two chickens in a burlap sack, placed inside a hot spring. The man was required to appear in Mammoth Hot Springs Court. He pleaded guilty in court and is now banned from Yellowstone National Park for the duration of his 2 years of unsupervised probation and has been ordered to pay $1,200 in fines.
