Grand Teton National Park rangers assisted by a Teton Interagency helicopter rescued a New York man from the Grand Teton Thursday evening after he was injured by falling rocks. Park Spokesperson Jenny Anzelmo says 28-year-old David Perlman of Brooklyn, New York was ascending the mountain between the Headwall and Lower Saddle when several rocks broke free striking him and causing a significant injury.   Anzelmo says a member of Perlman’s climbing party continued to the Lower Saddle and contacted two park rangers on a routine backcountry patrol around 6:00 pm, who immediately initiated a rescue; stabilizing Perlman’s injury and providing emergency medical care at the scene.  Then with the help of other climbers in the area, the rangers brought Perlman to the park’s seasonal hut on the Lower Saddle and waited for a helicopter to evacuate him from the mountain. Pearlman was flown inside the helicopter to Lupine Meadows, and taken in a park ambulance from there to St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson.  There was no word on his condition.  Anzelmo says Perlman had been on the first day of a two-day guided climb of the mountain when he was injured.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer.
