‘Rare and elusive’ fox spotted in Yosemite National Park for first time in a century
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK -- It's not every day that a fox sighting makes headlines. But when it's a once-in-a-century sighting of a rare Sierra Nevada red fox, it merits a mention. Researchers on staff at Yosemite National Park made the find during a five-day trek through the backwoods of the park. The scientists, part of the aptly named Yosemite Carnivore Crew, went to check on motion sensitive cameras. That's when they saw them: two images of the fox, one from December and another in January, trotting through the snow.
