One ranger, Peter Wyss, says many of them seem to be in nature for the first time and don’t understand the basic rules – and then get angry with him. 

He told the ‘Blick’ newspaper, many are littering, lighting fires, cycling where they shouldn’t be and not keeping their dogs on a lead. 

He says many are only out since the lockdown.
