Cute, Ain't He?

During their stay at Mount Rainier National Park, David and Kay Scott not only toured the lodging possibilities there, but also had time to get out and about. During a stroll in the park they came upon this little guy, a Cascade fox.

Though listed as a threatened species, this guy obviously isn't camera shy.

Great Picture! I have enjoyed reading about your road trip.

Adorable!

Hopefuly some tourists/people will not hunt this little fellow. I mean, this fox should have left when he saw you. He's not afraid of people anymore and I think this will endanger his life. Luckily, you guys are animal loving people. What if the fox encountered pouchers or hunters?
