A fox exhibiting abnormal behavior was euthanized in November 2011 near Phantom Ranch along the Colorado River in Grand Canyon. Earlier that month, another fox collected near Phantom Ranch tested positive for rabies. Rabies is considered a natural wildlife disease and will likely run its course. To reduce your risk of injury or illness from an animal encounter (fox, bat, elk, mountain lion, squirrel) please follow these simple guidelines:

  • educate yourself and your children about proper behavior around animals, especially concerning to animals common to the area you will be visiting
  • don’t touch, pick-up, or approach wild animals
  • stay together as a group
  • keep food appropriately stored at all times
  • never feed wildlife
  • wild animals approaching humans is not normal – be aware of your surroundings and keep your distance
  • consider sleeping inside a tent
