That is ridiculous! How in the hell are people supposed to be aware of these archaic and unknown "laws??"
The Forest Rangers and/or Dept. of Forestry have been receiving a lot of funds lately. All I see now are masses of SUV's driving around town here in Lake Isabella, Wofford Heights, Mt. Mesa, Kernville, and other out flung areas of the Kern River Valley!
Where does this new found endless money supply come from to be able to hire so many??
They sure have not faced any budget cuts- but sure have gotten rid of many services for the public by claiming lack of funds!
Not cool!

Everybody knows you don't take things from public lands or any land that you don't personally own without getting a permit or asking. We learned that as children. It is your responsibility to know the rules of the public places you use. There is signage in the kiosks and the two FS offices in the KRV. They don't put a sign on every tree telling you you can't chop it down or dig it up for your landscaping. It is amazing that these people decided to go to the press and that the TV station thought it newsworthy. I'd be embarrassed.
