Yes in the past I have been appalled at the extent of goat herding,
lumbering and lately hauling out of the remaining firewood in at least one
National Park in Mexico.
    In our own National Parks I have also been amazed at the intensity of
sport fishing and the use of insecticide spray on mosquitos in campgrounds,
while butterfly collecting which is far less damaging to the ecology than
is the stocking and taking of fish, is prohibited.
