Two men, apparently French, were caught on camera doing something awful at the Grand Canyon.

They were filmed luring a squirrel with crumbs, laying a trail right up to the edge of the canyon, where the two horrible men were wearing only boxer shorts and cowboy hats as they prepared their act of random cruelty.

Once the squirrel was close enough to the edge of the canyon, one of the men put on a

This story is just awful!

Arizona officials have confirmed that 53-year-old John N. Anderson of Grapevine, Texas fell to his death at the Grand Canyon on Saturday afternoon.

According to the Grand Canyon Media Office, on March 15 the Grand Canyon Regional Communications Center was contacted about an older man who'd fallen at the canyon rim, near the El Tovar hotel.

Rangers at the national park were able to locate Anderson's body—which had fallen upwards to 350 feet.

Rescuers administered CPR upon arrival, but were unable to resuscitate him.

An investigation into the incident is under way, but sources are saying the victim was there with his family.

This entire ordeal is truly heartbreaking.

Our prayers are with John's family.

Tightrope? More like tightNOPE! There is NO WAY we would do this, unless we were like completely harnessed in and it was more of a zipline than an awful stroll across nature's largest pothole! LOLz!

Daredevil Nik Wallenda isn't us, though, and has completed a tightrope walk a quarter mile over the Little Colorado River Gorge in northeastern Arizona. He did it on a 2-inch-thick steel cable, 1,500 feet above

Kenny Chesney Wants To Save The Parks!

wenn5462940jb.jpg

Kenny Chesney is a real life Leslie Knope!

The country singer is attempting to raise money for the National Parks Conservation Assocation by donating $1 from the first 50,000 tickets sold of his Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D concert film to help fund projects at the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Biscayne National Parks!

He says:

"Any time you can give back or help protect our nation's parks, that's a good thing. Growing up near the Smokey Mountains — or spending as much time in the U.S. Virgin Islands as I do — you realize what a resource it is for all of us. No matter who you are, what you do, that beauty is all of ours to enjoy — to go camping, hiking, to sail in — and that undeveloped land is a gift. But it's a gift to maintain. The idea people could buy tickets for my movie, and a dollar from each ticket will help maintain the parks, made me really happy. I know a lot of people are gonna see it, [and] they can also help the National Parks Conservation Association raise $50,000 to get us started on this partnership."

What a wonderful gesture!

Congratulations, Kenny!!
