There are fools, damn fools, and tourists, but I repeat myself (to paraphrase Mark Twain).
Roam around the Internet and you can find a story after story of people not respecting wildlife, or even domestic farm animals.
One incident that sticks in the memory was on NM Hwy 64 headed East out of Cimarron towards I 25. A minivan was pulled over with the tailgate up next to a fence with bison on the other side.
They became highly offended when I tapped on the sign and said, “Just how dumb a shit are you, dumb shit”? I just drove on. What else?
County fairs and rodeos are another place to see the fools. I believe nearly every state has some variation of an equine law.
You can find some variation of these signs everywhere.
Doesn’t deter the fools.
I won’t even get started on people stopping at any place, like blind curves, for a photo opportunity.
Yes, I'm aware of the irony of this rant compared to my blog title.
