Men urinate on Old Faithful, get fired

Two yellowstone workers were fired after they were caught (by a live webcam) peeing on Old Faithful.

Park spokesman Al Nash said a 23-year-old man on Tuesday was fined $750 and placed on three years of unsupervised probation for urinating, being off trail in a restricted area and taking items from the area. The man also was banned from Yellowstone for two years.

The second employee's case is pending.

The park's dispatch center was called after someone watching a webcam on the geyser saw six employees leaving the trail and walking on Old Faithful on May 4.

Note to employees: if you work someplace where there is a live webcam you should assume that you're always being watched.
