Saw this adorable marmot over labor day weekend. of course, the only reason he walked right up to us and stood up like this is because he’s used to people feeding him. he even tried to get into someone’s backpack while we were there.
why is it that people think the “don’t feed the animals” signs only apply to large animals? they don’t. this applies to all animals. i know they’re cute, but please. don’t feed them. when colder weather comes along and no one is hiking this trail, this poor little guy isn’t going to know how to feed himself and he’s probably not going to make it.
to read more about this and all the other irresponsible and destructive things i witnessed during this most recent labor day weekend, head on over to my new blog post. link in bio.
