Man in hot water after trying to cook chicken in famous Yellowstone hot springs

       A Utah man has been banned from Yellowstone National Park for two years after getting caught trying to cook chickens in one of the park’s famed hot springs.

The incident goes back to mid-August when a park ranger reportedly discovered a large group attempting to boil two chickens in a burlap sack in a thermal spring. Park visitors are prohibited from leaving walkways and venturing to the park’s fragile and potentially dangerous thermal pools.

Three men associated with the group were cited for unlawful travel into the restricted areas. One man was sentenced to several fines and two years of probation, during which he will not be allowed to return to Yellowstone.

Yellowstone’s hot spring can reach temperatures of 198 degrees per the United States Geological Survey. The minimum safe temperature at which chicken can be consumed is 165 degrees, so, theoretically, it would have worked, but they’re still idiots.
