Wyoming Tourist Called 911 To Report That Deer ‘Looked Lost’
It's been a relatively quiet year for stupid tourists in Wyoming. Nobody was gored posing for bison selfies, no one attempted to rescue a baby calf in their SUV and, thankfully, nobody fell into a geothermal geyser.
In another stroke of dumb luck, disaster was narrowly averted in Jackson last month when a woman called 911 to report a “huge group of deer who looked lost.”
According to the Jackson Hole News and Guide, the lady became concerned after watching several deer gather in a nearby parking lot. The dispatcher educated the caller about the migration patterns of deer and explained that, although they may look lost, the animals know where they are going.
It could have been worse. At least the woman didn't get drunk and stumble into a stranger's house at 3 a.m or steal a car from a pizza delivery man.
