This is an excerpt from Death, Daring, and disasters Search and Rescue in the National Parks. The "attitude" is recognizable, but the style is amusingly dated. Enjoy!
Summer of 1884 Yellowstone National Park
The wife of Professor Wm. Allen of Madison, Wisc. while at the Grand Canyon (of Yellowstone), was attacked and fearfully bitten by wild beasts. Her two sons came to her assistance, and with much difficulty succeeded in rescuing her. They had no arms with them, having been informed at the Mammoth Hot Springs Post Office that hunting in the Park was strictly prohibited. She was terribly bitten on her hands and face before the insatiable blood-suckers could be choked or smoked off. Mrs. Allen is highly indignant at the secretary's order prohibing the killg of animals in the National Park. She declares they ought to be shot, no matter how enchanting their song may be. These were the only wild beasts she encountered during her tour in the Park. When she comes again she gives fair notice that she will come armed to the teeth, and will kill every blood-sucking bird or beast of prey, unless the assistants are on hand to furnish them with food sufficient to amuse them while she is tending to her own business.
