YUCK – Closed Wyoming Rest Areas Still Being Used
First off, sorry for the poop image that is attached to this story. I could not find anything else that really "illustrated the headline."
Not too long ago, the Governor of Wyoming announced that to save money, the state would be closing around 10 highway rest areas. But only the ones that are in or near towns. Not the ones out in the middle of nowhere, where we need them.
For example, Chugwater Wyoming has a state rest stop right across the road from a convenience store. True, the store only allows their facilities to be used by paying customers, but come on, you can't buy a bottle of water for their trouble? Those employees have to clean those toilets after all.
Well, apparently it is asking too much of some people.
Douglas Wyoming, according to the Casper Star Trubune, has "piles of human excrement on the road into Jim Skeen’s property near Orin Junction, 11 miles outside of Douglas, last week. Next to each pile of poop were clearly-used wads of toilet paper."
