Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Four men were led away by security at Florida's Walt Disney World after attempting the scale the park's famous Tree of Life.

Disney visitors waiting in line for the It's Tough to Be a Bug film, which is shown inside a theater at the base of the tree in the Animal Kingdom area, spotted the four men climbing on Sunday.


A photo of the climbers went viral after being posted on Reddit.

Witnesses said the men made it about a third of the way up the tree before being led away by security staff.

"Security was called and they were 'spoken to.' No further information was given. My guess is they're banned for life and ended up with a trespassing charge," the photographer, Reddit user MrRyguy496, wrote.
