Will Pierce Brosnan regret his walk? The actor was sentenced

Late last year Pierce Brosnan was cited by the Yellowstone Justice Center after entering a prohibited area of ​​the national park. CNN obtained documents showing that Pierce Brosnan was summoned to appear in a Wyoming court on January 23 to face the charges. The actor was supposed to walk in the thermal areas of Yellowstone Park, which are closed to tourists. The matter came to light thanks to the actor himself, who published photos from his trip on Instagram.

Under federal law, hiking in these areas is limited to specially marked trails and paths. This is a legitimate law because more than 20 people have died after entering the park’s hot springs – temperatures in some places exceed 65 degrees Celsius. Pierce Brosnan was in the vicinity of Yellowstone Park because of the latest production in which he will take part, i.e “Unholy Trinity”- a western set in the 1870s.

According to, the actor has just heard the verdict in the case. Initially, he faced six months in prison and a $5,000 fine. At his first hearing in January, Brosnan pleaded not guilty. During the second one, he decided to reach a settlement. The film’s Bond was fined $500. He must also make a $1,000 donation to the nonprofit Yellowstone Forever. He also received a two-year suspended sentence.

“As an environmental defender, I feel respect and love for nature. However, I made an impulsive mistake – one I regret – when I strayed off the trail into the snow-covered thermal springs to take a photo. I didn’t see any ‘no entry’ signs to warn me of the danger. I didn’t walk around that area either. I deeply regret my offense and apologize for intruding on this sensitive area. We need to take care of Yellowstone and all parks so that they can be enjoyed by all of us in an unchanged form #StayOnThePath” – wrote the actor on Instagram.
