While this incident is one of the largest violations ever reported at Yellowstone, it is not the only noteworthy one to happen recently. In 2009, two Yellowstone National Park concession workers were fired when they were caught on a webcam urinating into Old Faithful. That was a costly trip to the loo — the violation came with a $750 fine and a two-year probation from visiting the park. As with the more recent incident, the employees were caught by people watching the live webcam feed.
