This was two years ago.

I'm surprised Asnes continued to carry her ski. Judging by the Norwegian comments it doesn't seem she enjoys a great reputation at home either.

Self-serving and gratuitous behavior on their part, for sure, especially as guests in another country. Looks like she was given a few chances too re: litter and chopping down trees. In NH I've found Game Wardens to be very reasonable and accommodating... until you shoot something out of season. I'm OK with this (coming down hard on poachers).

Morally, the TV producer should be considered accountable... and fined too.

Also, It tells an interesting story about the modern adventurer persona...

Despite how offensive this kind of behaviour is it seems like she’s got a lot of Sheeple followers- sanctions, fines or condemnation won’t have much impact as long as there’s a crowd cheering a person on. Kinda seems like outrageous behaviour leads to increased popularity...

My sentiments exactly, they didn't come down hard enough on her. Peoples sense of entitlement is off the charts anymore.
