"Among all the problems stemming from the partial government shutdown, one is that people are relieving themselves outside the confines of park bathrooms, many of which have been locked. The resulting frenzy, which the Washington Post said is giving iconic public lands “a Wild West vibe,” stems from an unusual federal contingency plan that keeps national parks open without staffing to monitor them. Unlike previous shutdowns, most national parks have not closed, and the damage being done is already noticeable.
'It’s so heartbreaking. There is more trash and human waste and disregard for the rules than I’ve seen in my four years living here,' Dakota Snider, a photographer and Yosemite employee, told the Associated Press.
The 792,000-acre Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California, which had originally been kept open, was closed Wednesday amid ongoing sanitation concerns and 'illegal activity' on the premises, the Park Service announced. 'The park is being forced to take this action for health and safety concerns as vault toilets reach capacity,' an NPS statement noted. 'In addition to human waste in public areas, driving off road and other infractions that damage the resource are becoming a problem.'"
