Freedom Camper in New Zealand Discovered by Matching Toilet Paper Roll

Jan 12, 2012

Don't leave your toilet paper behind in the beautiful New Zealand wilderness!

A freedom camper in New Zealand left behind tell tale toilet paper when illegally going to the bathroom in the wilderness.  Freedom camping, camping outside of campgrounds with bathroom facilities, in New Zealand has been prohibited in certain areas because of a growing human waste and litter problem.

The camper denied that she had gone to the bathroom, but the toilet paper on the ground matched the roll of tissue hanging out the back of her van. An officer confronted the offending camper.

Thames Coromandel District Council spokesperson Craig Birkett told the Waikato Times, “The officer said, ‘You can’t really deny it now can you?’ And she said, `Well, I guess not’.”

While freedom camping is not prohibited everywhere in New Zealand, there are certain areas of restriction. All illegal campers staying overnight in prohibited locations now could be fined $200.

Moral of this story: Don’t leave your toilet paper behind! endorses the responsible disposal of toilet paper.

    Although toilet papers are organic they should not be thrown anywhere. True, I would agree with proper and responsible toilet paper disposal.

    I think that the other kinds of human waste are more problematic than what the lady had done and that is why they should be fined! Throwing plastic bottles and other garbage is what really all this is about.
