3 cited for ‘cooking’ chickens in Yellowstone hot spring

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Cooking chickens in a Yellowstone hot spring has landed three people in hot water.

Yellowstone officials say a park ranger found two whole chickens in a burlap sack in a hot spring.

Court documents show that Eric Roberts, of Idaho Falls, Idaho, and Dallas Roberts, of West Valley City, Utah, were ordered to serve two days in jail and pay $540 in fines and fees for the Aug. 7, incident. Eric Romriell, of Idaho Falls, paid $1,250 in fines and fees.

They’re banned from Yellowstone for two years.

Reached Thursday, by the Associated Press, Eric Roberts offered an explanation: “Make dinner,” he said.
