When a little girl named Evie visited Yosemite National Park, she accidentally went home with two sticks in her pockets.
Evie was dismayed by her discovery. During her visit, she went through the Junior Park Ranger Program and learned that visitors shouldn’t take pieces of nature home with them.

Too late. The Stick Police division of DHS have already been dispatched.
She’s very fortunate the drone program isn’t quite up and running yet.
This isn’t funny. It’s a sad commentary on how children have been indoctrinated. It’s pathetic, not funny.
Alleged ‘cuteness’ notwithstanding, this is disturbing on several different levels, ya know ?
The National Park Service Gestapo of DHS has dispatched an assassination team to “eliminate” the national security threat posed by Evie to Yosemite National Park. No good deed ever goes unpunished. Goodbye, Evie.
yep...already conditioned to follow every stupid little moronic rule the gov’t put into place. lol...my son wuld have stuffed his pockets with all sorts of “cool” things from the ground and not thought twice about it.
My 9 year-old daughter was berated by a park ranger who saw her picking up and carrying something. The ranger launched into her screed as my daughter calmly showed her the bit of litter she had picked up. As the ranger paused, my daughter offered to put the candy wrapper back where she had found it. The ranger stalked off without the grace to even apologize.
I knew there was a reason I posted this.
What an adorable little automaton.
I did like one of the comments - “the cute store called - they’re out of you”
Hope no one in the gummint finds out about the water I drank from lake Yellowstone. It passed through me already and I don’t know where it is now.
Don’t Drone Me Bro!
What a megajerk.
What’s the difference between that and the Boy Scouts’ “Leave no trace”?
*** berated by a park ranger***
I have always found park rangers to mostly be friendly. I did find a jerk ranger at Arches NP several years ago.
I had taken a toy poodle to Canyon de Chelly, Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands with no problem. When I went to Arches, the ranger berated me and said I could not take my pup on a leash up a short trail. And “NO!” I could not carry him either!
So, the wife stayed in the truck with the pup, when I got back I stayed with the pup till she got back.
It is easy to see why some kid forty years ago said to a ranger...”HI pig ranger!”
RAT TAT TAT, RAT TAT TAT TAT TAT!!!
KILL THE DAMN DOG BEFORE YOU LEAVE TOO!!!
Yeah, mostly they are nice. In January, I was treated to a lecture on the difference between sunset and dusk, and given a $45 ticket. (In my ignorance, I did not know)
How can I get a job writing at sfgate.com? I can poach threads from reddit too!
She’s lucky she didn’t get a fine or a ticket.
Maybe that stick will be the thing that causes a massive forest fire.
Take pictures of them starting a fire. That will teach the girl that no good deed goes unpunished.
Complete with a Reaper Drone armed with Hellfire missiles.
Re Elian’s pic.
Your large, hi def photo revealed something I never noticed before —
The ‘operator’s’ gear is all BRAND NEW.
No sweat, no wear, no dirt (= no experience).
Don’t know about the other parks, but pets really aren’t allowed on trails in Canyonlands and Arches.
So you got away with breaking the rules at Canyonlands, which puts you one up on the Park Service.
OTOH, the guy didn’t have to be a jerk about it.
What more needs to be said. These people are narcist’s by nature, swelled by a sense of power. The fact that your daughter was able stand him down with kindness should be a lesson for us all. These people need confrontation, they cannot stand to be humiliated. Kudo’s to you and your daughter
No she isn’t, what foolish talk is that? Give her a break, she should be commended for doing what she “thought” was right, and BY THE LAW OF THE PARK was right. What do you want, her to grow up with no regard to any law. This sounds so liberal to me. So sorry if this offends.
And in a few years she’ll have an abortion and believe that it’s no big deal. For libs, twigs have value; babies do not.

It takes a special type of loser to bully a 9 year old child over a bit of litter...WOW!
The only consolation is that the idiot will die one day and the obituary will be a joke that nobody reads.
If this was a more sane age then this would be heart-warming and adorable.
The fact of the matter is that the little girl is very lucky that she didn’t catch the attention of idiot liberals. They have no problem hunting down and putting handcuffs on small children. Then comes the verbal and physical brutalization. It happens over ‘illegal’ food in schools, ‘illegal’ lemonade stands, etc etc.
We are already in Bizarro world! Pray for nuclear Armageddon!
"The law of the park" doesn't exist, you totaliarian maniac. It's actually a part of the US Code, and it only applies to government and corporate workers, and has been extended by contractual presumption to everyone else under duress, which makes it void ab initio. But arguing this has been made expensive through Court procedures designed to fool people into believing that there is actually such a thing as a "law of the park" by which they can go out and scare little girls into kneejerk obedience to mysterious powers that hold them as slaves.
Is that clear, jackass?
Squirrel Cops With Glocks!
But the movie would not have been nearly as funny!
She should have bought them at the Stick Store.
Boy, you sound like a real prick.
Keep in mind that there are MILLIONS of people now that have NO IDEA what this photo is about...
That just makes my blood run cold.
‘totaliarian maniac’ & ‘jackass’ proves that you have a liberal-foul mouth, any would be adult that would lambaste a child for doing what she “thought’ was law would appear quite childish as your words suggest. Relax and loosen up a bit.
