WILDLIFE WATCHING -- Although the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services fudges on the issue, the mountain caribou is the rarest big game species in the United States and therefore the most endangered.

So capturing a photo of a Selkirk mountain caribou isn't just a big deal, says Kalispel Tribe wildlife biologist Bart George -- It's "The Holy Grail for trail cam pictures!"

That is, if Sasquatch isn't.
