ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colorado – It’s National Park tourism season, and that means it’s a great time to remind everyone to not be stupid in their favorite national park! What does that mean? It means people doing stupid things! So Rocky Mountain National Park asks you, what’s wrong with this picture?

What is wrong with this picture taken this week in Rocky Mountain National Park?

a) the park visitor has illegally approached wildlife

b) the park visitor is in a closed meadow – a meadow that is closed this time of year to protect wildlife!

c) the young bull moose is demonstrating his concern by laying his ears back

d) the park visitor has his back to the moose while taking a selfie – moose are faster than they look

e) all of the above

All wildlife in Rocky Mountain National Park are wild animals and they should be given respect and space to be … wild. If an animal is reacting to you, you are too close. For moose and bears, keep back at least 120 feet or 36 meters. That’s more than two school bus lengths.

In case you’re still trying to figure it out, it’s ‘e’, all of the above. Don’t be like this moose selfie idiot! If you’re still not quite understanding how to go about viewing moose and other wildlife this summer, check out Rocky Mountain NP’s wildlife viewing tips.
