Strange bedfellows at Mount Rainier’s Paradise

I saw this item on Kevin Bacher’s Mount Rainier National Park volunteer blog, and thought I would pass it along.

… The Paradise foxes have started to sleep in snow caves and curl up by the feet of tired campers. Unfortunately the foxes seem to enjoy hauling out the sleeping campers’ gear into the snow and at least one boot disappeared. The Park Service is working on new methods to discourage human/fox interactions.

I know rangers have been working hard this summer to discourage people from feeding the foxes. Even the staff at the entrance station has been spreading the word.

If you plan on snow camping, be aware.
