At the Smokies: Tourists disturbing animals

On a recent visit to the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, USA, I noted how well-maintained the premises of the national park are. However, it seems like they have to put in place a mechanism to stop tourists from venturing too close to the deer. While there are signboards telling tourists not to venture out of way or disturb the animals and plants, I saw several tourists who taunted the deer and tried getting too close. It only scared off the animals. In several places there is barb wire, but that didn’t really stop them. Wish there were guard towers or better fencing to discourage tourists from doing this.
