‘Park Ranger Karen’ Tells Asian Family “They Can’t Be in Her Country”
July 7, 2020
This incident happened on July 4th. An Asian family, husband, wife, 11-year-old daughter, and a 11 pound Maltipoo went for a hike. On their way down, they encountered a “Park Ranger Karen” who blocked their path and commanded“You guys you can’t be in this country. You can’t break the law.”
YouTube account “Superduper koolguy” uploaded the incident and has since garnered more than 97,000 views. This detailed account was taken from their description.
“We decided to take a family hike through a trail in the woods about an hour from our house. We brought our 11 pound Maltipoo with us. Along the hike, we saw several other hikers with their dogs. Everything was fun and friendly. People were saying “Hello” and practicing social distancing by letting others pass when we crossed paths. After a long hike, we were headed back down the mountain to our car.
A lady and her husband were coming up the trail as we were going down. We stepped off to the side to let them pass. The husband passed, but the lady just stood there. So we continued walking. Our 11 year old daughter was in front with our dog on the leash. The lady aggressively stepped in front of our daughter and blocked her path. She began telling our daughter that we were breaking the law. My wife, who was behind our daughter asked what was going on, and the lady told us to turn around and go back to where we came from…more strangeness then ensues.”
