MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) - Grand Teton National Park officials are looking into how a dead coyote and a dead fox ended up in the middle of a road inside the park.

Wildlife photographer Tim Mayo says he saw the animals. He says the coyote had been skinned and the fox shot in the head. His theory is that the animals fell out of a trapper’s truck.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1cm4jNx) foxes and coyotes are classified in Wyoming as predators. That means they can be shot on sight without a permit. Hunting or trapping such animals in Grand Teton is illegal, however.

Park officials say anybody with information about the dead animals can call (307) 739-3677.
