Comment Card Scolds National Park For Failing To Train Bears Better

"Please train your bears to be where guests can see them."

For some people, the problem with the great outdoors is ... it's outdoors.

Take this visitor to Yellowstone National Park, for instance, who failed to see any bears and recommended lodge employees train them better. The unidentified guest left a comment card at the front desk of the hotel, requesting that staffers "please train your bears to be where guests can see them."

A photo of the card was shared Wednesday on Reddit:

The comment card further scolds, "This was an expensive trip to not get to see bears."

A spokesperson for Xanterra Parks & Resorts, the company that manages Yellowstone's lodges, couldn't speak to the authenticity of the comment card. However, a spokeswoman from the Yellowstone National Park Public Affairs Office did confirm to The Huffington Post that these types of comment cards are available in the park. Judging from some of the one-star ratings the national park has received, it's not too much of a stretch to think it's real.

Here's what one Yelper had to say of the Grand Canyon:

...as amazing as the views are it is really kind of boring. Every 500 ft a new vantage point of the same thing: a really big hole in the ground.

The Grand Canyon -- just a really big hole in the ground, according to one visitor.

And for good measure, here's a one-star Yelp review for Yosemite:

Terrible experience. We drove into the park and were unable to find parking ANYWHERE. After two hours of searching for a parking space, we ended up leaving the park without using our $150 tram tickets. It is completely over- crowded and shame on park officials for taking $30 per vehicle with no concern as to whether you will have a place to park the vehicle or not. How about you cut down the surrounding burned trees and make another parking lot or five.

Yosemite: A vista in serious need of another parking lot ... or five, according to one visitor.
