Wildlife biologists have confirmed the sighting of two more Sierra Nevada red foxes in Stanislaus National Forest, revealing that the species is not extinct!!
The first sighting in two decades of these red foxes came in September in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest near Sonora Pass.
DNA of these foxes was collected from their poo, which then revealed enough diversity in the DNA that biologists think there is a fairly strong population.
This is such and exiting discovery! We love hearing this kind of news!!
