A vandal who carved the name ‘Nick’ into a rockface at Yellowstone has sparked fury among fans of the iconic park.

A photo shared in the Facebook group ‘Yellowstone National Park: Invasion of The Idiots’ showed the scribble on a thermal crust off the Biscuit Basin boardwalk. 

The scratching said, ‘Nick and [illegible] were here.’ Members of the Facebook group have launched an effort to try and identify Nick and his partner in crime.

‘Dirty, rotten a******s! Get photographic evidence catching them in the act! They deserve to be reported and publicly shamed! This is getting ridiculous,’ said one group member.

‘Please take a picture of the people doing this and follow them to there vehicle and take a picture of there license plate and turn it in,’ said another.

‘There are only so many Rangers so they need our help with this. Lets not let these people destroy our beautiful parks. Lets get em people.’

The Biscuit Basin trial is a 0.6-mile loop that wraps around hydrothermal features, such as Sapphire Pool, Avoca Spring and Jewel Geyser which erupts every seven to 10 minutes.

Others who viewed the picture expressed their fury over the vandalism and said how’d they like to get revenge towards the people violating the park rules.

‘Man if I see someone doing this they will be eating that rock and then nothing solid ever again. People are ignorant and I’m ready to just start shutting people’s lights out,’ said one person. 

‘I’d like to stake them out over a hill full of fire ants,’ said another.

‘Nick you’re a d**k,’ wrote a third.

‘A******s what’s wrong with these idiots ban them from the park,’ someone else added.

As tourists season ramps up in Yellowstone, so do groups dedicated to capturing moron tourists – dubbed ‘tourons’ – in an attempt to hold them accountable.

The webcams around Yellow Stone National Park have captured multiple instances where ignorant tourists have put themselves in harm’s way for a variety of reasons – ranging from wanting to get closer to the wildlife or climbing over barriers to get a better selfie.

An Instagram account titled ‘Tourons of Yellowstone’ compiles all of the instances in which a ‘touron,’ the combination of a ‘tourist’ and a ‘mouron’, does yet another unbelievably stupid charade, defiling the park’s rules time and time again.

James Bond star Pierce Brosnan was fined $500 and made a $1,000 donation after he was caught posting pictures online of himself in a Yellowstone thermal area during a visit in November.

The actor 70, walked in an off-limits area at Mammoth Terraces, in the northern part of Yellowstone near the Wyoming-Montana line, on Nov. 1, according to citations issued by the park.

He uploaded images of himself standing in the snow on the thermal feature to his Instagram page, court records said.

Venturing off the boardwalk is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.

Brosnan initially pleaded not guilty in January to wandering into the ‘delicate’ and dangerous hot springs at Yellowstone National Park, despite being pictured standing on the protected area at the time of the alleged infraction.

Magistrate Judge Stephanie A. Hambrick then granted the 70-year-old’s request to cancel his initial appearance.

In 2021, a Connecticut woman was jailed for seven days, fined $2,000 and banned from Yellowstone for two years for leaving the walkway and approaching the thermals. 

The features at Yellowstone are dangerous and fragile and if damaged they can take years to correct.

Numerous people have been killed from falling into Yellowstone’s scalding pools.

They include Colin Nathaniel Scott, who is thought to have dissolved in the hot acidic water after leaving the boardwalk at the park’s Norris Geyser Basin in search of a place to soak in 2015.
