A tourist left some unconventional feedback for Yellowstone lodge workers after encountering zero bears during an pricey visit to the U.S. park.
“Please train your bears to be where guests can see them,” read a note shared by a Reddit user on Wednesday. “This was an expensive trip to not get to see bears.”
According to the U.S. National Park Service, approximately 150 grizzly bears roam Yellowstone — and all 150 eluded the sad and mysterious tourist.
On the flip side, this isn’t a story about a bear encounter gone awry. Bears aren’t complete strangers to humans visiting the park’s sprawling 9,000-sq. kilometres of protected land.
In May, a group of tourists was chased off a bridge after a mother bear and her cubs decided to cross it.
The park has long remained a popular destination for nature lovers. More than three million people make their way to Yellowstone each year to drink in its natural splendour.

It’s easily one of the most breathtaking, picturesque national parks in the world and is home to almost half the world's geysers. Oh, and bears, too. Well, sometimes.
