April 8 Recently, more than 5,000 people in the United States participated in an illegal party held in an Arizona national forest, causing many violations and traffic accidents.
According to CNN on the 7th, the incident occurred on the 3rd local time in the Tonto National Forest near Phoenix City, Arizona. The U.S. Forest Service said that rangers found thousands of people gathering illegally while patrolling near a recreational area in the forest. Campers and party attendees separate parts of the main road as their camp area, and vehicles park along the main road.
According to FDA officials, the illegal party led to multiple violations, including drunk driving, speeding, traffic jams and illegal use of fireworks and firecrackers, as well as seven traffic accidents and reports of theft of several non-road motor vehicles. The agency requires a permit for non-commercial groups of 75 or more people to use FDA land.
“When a place gathers too many people, it hurts others who want to enjoy there, and for wildlife,” said Scott Gallid, executive chairman of the Arizona Wildlife Federation. Sandy Barr, director of the Grand Canyon chapter of Sierra Club, said that she was scared by the picture of this illegal party: “Many people do various activities in the same area, which will be super destructive.” Overseas Network/Zhang Ni Internship Compilation/Yue Lei)
