BOZEMAN, Mont. – Yellowstone National Park officials are investigating after human remains were found in the northwestern corner of the park.
Park spokeswoman Amy Bartlett says a snowshoer found some remains late Wednesday. Dog teams located additional remains on Thursday. Bartlett said they likely were scattered by animals.
The remains have been taken to the Gallatin County coroner’s office.
Bartlett says they haven’t identified the person or determined a cause of death.
