Park rangers began an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the presence of two wildlife carcasses—one coyote and one red fox— lying alongside the road near Gros Ventre Junction and just east of Highway 26/89/191 in Grand Teton National Park. Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says several passersby spotted the two animal carcasses and reported them to the Interagency Dispatch Center. Skaggs says rangers immediately began their investigation into what are very curious circumstances. She says that it was coyote and a fox carcasses together makes it unusual. Skaggs says, “These two animals don’t usually travel together. There’s a hierarchy among the canids, so the fact that these two different species of the canid family were in the same area –both dead, both alongside of the road – was unusal. Skaggs says information about the cause of death was not immediately available. She says investigators are asking that anyone who might have seen something that might to useful in the investigation to please contact the park.
