An Idaho man is banned from Yellowstone National Park for trying to fry chickens in the hot springs.

Rangers caught the unnamed Idaho Falls native with two whole hens in a burlap sack “cooking” in the hot spring and cooking pots near the Shoshone Geyser Basin.

The man was issued a $1,200 fine and ordered to serve two years of unsupervised probation during which he is banned from entering the park.

Yellowstone has strict rules against putting anything in the hot springs or leaving the marked trails as people could get burned by the 143-degree water. The parks say 20 people have died that way.
