"Albright [Horace, early Yellowstone superintendent and later director of the National Park Service] regarded wildlife largely as a tourist attraction and never embraced the goal of protecting an untouched nature. Rather like the man who puts a woman on a pedestal so he can look up her skirt, Albright protected wildlife so that visitors could enjoy seeing it at close range, even if it meant sacrificing the animals' dignity and autonomy."
