The ranger station should have been her first clue. All the people with cameras should have been her second.
Still, on Jan. 13, Cindy L. Szemenyei, from Firestone, CO, went hunting along Endovalley Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. Wearing blaze orange and carrying a rifle, Szemenyei and her companion shot what she thought was a deer just off a popular paved trail three miles inside the park. Officials later determined it wasn't a deer but an elk that was wounded but never found. Szemenyei insists she didn't know she was inside the park boundary, even though the only way in is through a gate manned by rangers. She and her companion were fined.
