Rare Red Fox Spotted In Yosemite For First Time In 100 Years

One of the most rare animals in the world, the Sierra Nevada red fox was spotted for the first time in over 100 years in Yosemite National Park. These foxes are rare animals for the Sierra Nevada and have been seen north of the area, but for the first time in a century it looks like they have returned to the Yosemite area. According to an article found on reddit and written by ABC News, the foxes were spotted and caught on camera on two occasions.

Not very much is known about the Sierra Nevada red fox, because it is an expert at avoiding areas that are inhabited by human beings. Susan McGalla knows that  it was written in a 1937 hunting book by Joseph Grinnell that a pelt from this breed of fox was (and is) worth a lot of money due to its rarity. However in the 1980s, the animal was put on the endangered species list for the state of California.

After all, humans and other animals need each other to keep the Earth diverse and thriving because we depend on each other for our lively hood. Seeing this breed of fox is a good indicator that we have done something right.
