It’s the same with bears. Yes let’s get a selfie with a grizzly coming up behind me while I hold this big fish. The insanity of it all escapes me.

They were fools, but what is going after them legally at this point going to really do? The deed was done and there were no victims.

Nothing should be changed at the park if someone gets hurt on them called Darwin.

I hope they are assessed a major fine, personally. They violated a major park safety rule. They had to have known they were doing so.

I don't think they can impose a fine unless there was something posted that says that violators of the rules are subject to fines.

Read it again. Then think about it.

It's called deterrence. You know, one of the pillars of the criminal justice system?

That's not going to deter loons like these two who want to break the rules.

Most people seem to have common sense and are deterred by the fact that such activity is prohibited. But you'll always have people who engage in reckless before so long as they are physically allowed to do so.

If you catch people in the act, sure fine them and do whatever else is allowed under the law. Trying to locate them after the fact seems a bit ridiculous in my view.
