A tour group of seniors inside Yellowstone Park, Wyoming were ‘sequestered’ inside a park hotel under armed guard for “many hours” then bussed out of the park on a 2-1/2 hour trip with no bathroom stops.
As the tour bus entered Yellowstone, it stopped to allow the group to off-board and take photos of bison. A Park Ranger ordered them back on the bus, saying they could not “recreate.”
The group of about 48 senior citizens went on to their historic hotel, The Old Faithful where they were promptly “locked inside with armed rangers outside the door.”
On the 2-1/2 hour ride out of the park, the tour guide had arranged for an in-park dude ranch to accommodate a bathroom stop but officials refused to allow it and notified the ranch owner that the facility’s license would be revoked if it allowed bus passengers inside.
Many of the foreign visitors were shocked and dismayed by what had happened and how they were treated, Vaillancourt [one of the tourists] said.
“A lot of people who were foreign said they wouldn’t come back (to America),” she said. Read More.
The visitors were in the U.S. from Japan, Australia, and Canada as well as the United States.
