BLM comments about BM after pooping man starts 73 acre fire

Depending on who you are, you could be either very embarrassed or very proud that your bowel movement has made headlines in the local news. Such is the case today (Thursday) in Boise, Idaho where the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) is commenting about someone’s BM. That someone is an unidentified bicyclist who couldn’t wait and then decided to get rid of some of the evidence. No charges have been filed.

According to BLM spokeswoman Carrie Bilbao, a man was cycling in the foothills when he stopped to defecate in a ravine. Afterwards, the man tried to get rid of the waste by lighting his toilet paper on fire. The man apparently tried to bury the burning waste to extinguish it, but an ember spread to nearby dry grass.

“I guess when you gotta go, you gotta go,” Bilbao said.
