Monday was a tough day for tourists in Yellowstone

You can tell the tourist season is in full bloom in Yellowstone National Park.

Carl Dullmaier, 56, of Gernsheim, Germany, was thrown from a horse near Tower Junction. He later died from head injuries after being lifeflighted to a Billings, Montana, hospital, according to a National Park Service press release.

Then a 37-year-old man from Provo, Utah, suffered thermal burns on the Solitary Geyser Trail in the Upper Geyser Basin. He was transported by ambulance to West Yellowstone, Montana, and by plane to the Salt Lake City, Utah, Burn Center.

Finally, the trifecta: A 65-year-old male British national from Bangkok, Thailand was thrown into the air by a bull bison at Mammoth Hot Springs. He was transported to Memorial Hospital in Livingston, Montana.

At least no one was attacked by a grizzly bear.

"He later died from head injuries after being lifeflighted to a Billings..."

Life Flight or LifeFlight for some.
Billings, Montana has MedFlight.

Wrongo Rocko, what your wrote is NOT a word.

Oh wait, what you copy/pasted (plagiarized) is not a word.

That's like copying your answers from the dumb kid in class.

Wow verbatim without a source

This is just sad...

Does the Statesman not review these articles prior to them being printed??? This is obvious plagiarism with no source citations. Is there an entity above the Statesman that can provide sanctions against someone like Rocky??? He obviously isn't qualified to write articles for your paper. Someone needs to review his past articles and seriously consider replacing him.

This is not an article, it's a blog. The option to read is yours

Before you edit your post, I will note that you said, "Wrongo Rocko, what your wrote is NOT a word."


Eye thinc ewe shud bee les kritikull.


True, Shazam.
Good one. :-)

No one pays me to be a 'writer'.
I have typos everywhere- as we all do.

Typos are one thing- Terrible writing for a 'professional' writer is way off the charts.

Mutilating press releases
Incorrect information
Making stuff up
Using words that don't exist
Terrible grammar
Irrational conclusions
Cherry picking information

Let's say you were on a plane and the pilot was drunk.
He can still fly the plane to get you where you're going, so why be so critical?

I hear you.

That's why whenever I flame someone for spelling/grammar, I read, re-read, read backwards, sideways and every which way what I posted to make sure what just happened to you, doesn't happen to me!

Doesn't always work though. But it's fun to catch.

Welcome to the ZOO

Most folks around here know that you stay as far away from the National Parks as possible during the busy season. The tourist are more scary than the wildlife. Besides the whole pay at the door thing at the NP's has become a serious joke...I guess all those federal taxes we pay every year doesn't buy me a discount to our own park system. Last year we were trying to get to Beartooth Pass got soaked for $20.00 just to drive through the park...only stopped due to the idiots jammed up dealing with the bison.

Why was the guy from Thailand riding a bison


The mechanical bull was broke.
