Welcome to Montana by rocamiadesign

This is something that Shaun did for fun. I wasn’t planning to upload it, but it was perfect for the Signs, billboards, roadsigns, directions, storefront signs, etc. challenge in the Cee’s Fun Artsy Friends group. I’ll probably take it down after the challenge.

Shaun made this as an editorial statement. He writes, “I live very close to Glacier National Park, and I am dedicating this piece to all the retarded tourists we get here, who feel the need to endanger themselves, their children, and others by trying to either feed or pet the wildlife. Bears are wild animals and they WILL ATTACK YOU if you invade their space! This unfortunately results in the bear being killed, all because of the stupididy of someone who wants to get a good experience or photo opportunity.”

Bears are best, photographed with a telephoto lens. We once saw a sow black bear, with a very young cub, walking away from The Loop, a viewpoint on Going-to-the-Sun Highway in Glacier National Park. The bears were followed by a crowd of people with cameras. Some were throwing rocks at the bears, in an attempt to get them to turn around. These people had children with them! When we reported what happened at the Rangers Station, they told us that people do that all the time. The rangers are constantly being dispatched to run the tourists away. There is a good reason why the Park Service posts signs, telling people to avoid areas where bears have been spotted.

    You are right on with this….and when the tourists leave….what does the wildlife do then…esp.the young wildlife is is used to having scrapes from tourists….not neccessarily the best diets for other species either….,so if the tourists REALLY "give a damm’ about wildl9fe….let the wildlife stay wild and fend for themselves! Tell ’em Shaun!! Go Guy!!!

  • Thank you! I’ll pass your comment along to Shaun.

    Very well done. I have seen many stupid things done by tourists while I’ve been in someof the places. Amazing they can walk, scary they can drive.

  • LOL! There driving is really scary. I’m never the one driving the car, so I can close my eyes when we go anywhere. Sometimes I think they’re all trying to kill me.

    Hahaha! This is so funny – excellent artwork and humour :-) That boot and sock don’t look very easy to digest though…

  • Thank you! No, I don’t think they’d go down easily. It’s amazing, though, some of the things that have been found in bears’ stomachs.
