The sighting provides research partners the opportunity to learn more about the fox and help protect it.

Motion-sensitive cameras took pictures of the fox in the northern part of the park. There have been two sightings, but officials aren't sure if it's the same or a different fox.

Crews have set up hair snare stations in the area in hopes of obtaining a hair sample and get a genetic analysis of the animal. Yosemite's remote areas create a hospitable habitat for wildlife, away from any disturbances and people. 

Kari Cobb is a park ranger at Yosemite National Park and she joined Take Two for the latest on the rare sighting.
