YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo., Aug. 27 (UPI) -- A disappointed visitor to Yellowstone National Park left a note on a feedback form asking rangers to train bears to hang out where they can be seen.

The note, shared on Reddit by a person who purported to be a friend of an employee at a Yellowstone lodge, was written on the bottom of a feedback form for trouble with maintenance and housekeeping.


The note reads: "Our visit was wonderful but we never saw any bears. Please train your bears to be where guests can see them. This was an expensive trip to not get to see bears."

A Redditor commenting on the post said the note reminded them of a quote from a Yellowstone park ranger: "There is considerable overlap between the intelligence of the smartest bears and the stupidest tourists."
