Amanda works for the interpretation division of the National Park Service. More specifically, she works crowd control at the traffic jams created by bears and other animals. In other words, she is the ranger chasing that fellow who stopped his car in the middle of the road, jumped out with disposable camera in hand (leaving the door open), to chase a grizzly bear through the woods. In short, she tries to insure that there are fewer contenders for the Darwin awards. Protecting the animals of Yellowstone is her number one priority.
