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 within Grand Teton National Park.

Around 7 a.m. Friday morning, January 24, several passersby called the Teton Interagency Dispatch Center to report that two animal carcasses were located near Gros Ventre Junction. Park rangers arrived shortly after these initial calls and began an investigation to determine how these two animals died and why their carcasses were located near each other at the junction.

If anyone has further information about this incident, please phone Grand Teton's Park Watch line at 307.739.3677. Callers can remain anonymous.
