Rangers at the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, CA, found a six-piece sectional couch set up with a nice view of the Pacific Ocean, along with enough trash and beer cans to fill several garbage bags.
Five federal employees with hand carts and two trucks struggled to haul the huge sofa off National Park Service property.
To the folks who left the six-piece sectional sofa set up with a view overlooking the Pacific Ocean at Deer Creek:
This land IS your land (but it’s not your living room)! It’s a living space for all wildlife and visiting people.
It took some human muscle, hand carts, and two trucks for five federal employees to haul the furniture from National Park Service property. The cigarette butts, beer cans and bottles that were strewn around were enough to fill two garbage bags, too.
Please consider your actions and don’t litter! This was a waste of resources and time.
Signed, the park rangers at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area who spent their day hauling away litter.
It’s believed that the couch was dragged up there for a photoshoot.
