It's his park too

Keene, New Hampshire performance artist Jonathan Doyle has filed a formal complaint with that state's attorney general after he was bounced from a state park for frolicking around, along with several others, in a Bigfoot costume on a mostly-unused trail, apparently not offending anyone but the martinet park ranger who did said bouncing.

It's admittedly not behavior in which we would participate, but Doyle seems harmless enough, and no one is claiming that he was doing anything dangerous, threatening or obscene. So what's with the heavy-handed treatment, besides the stroking of Ranger Friendly's ego?
