The commotions began early last week when the human rights group Humans Against Death And Discrimination, led by John Wilkins, launched a series of protests against the National Park Service for refusing to accept the demands that included the "bulldozing of wild forests," "extermination of all deadly animals with sharp teeth," "lowering of water levels in rivers to 12 inches" and "paving of green fields to build hospitals and handicap centers." Wilkins commented to the National Park Tribune:
"Where is our freedom in this country? Millions of obese, stupid, deformed and otherwise handicapped American citizens and foreign tourists alike are being discriminated by the uncontrollable forces of nature. What happens if a dangerous tree suddenly falls down and kills someone or if any of those blood thirsty bears come up and swallow a poor autistic child alive! America, take your responsibility!"
