Goldendoodle Lost in Yellowstone For 16 Days Found Safe


A black goldendoodle named Delta that became lost in Yellowstone National Park on June 22 was captured 16 days after running away from its owners at a parking lot near Norris Geyser Basin. The dog was located at the very same parking lot it escaped from.

Yahoo reports an Idaho-based volunteer animal rescue group Ladies and The Trap played a key role in helping the owners retrieve the female dog, raising awareness on for her plight while loose in a park famous for its wild and sometimes ferocious critters, such as wolves, coyotes, and bears.

A Yellowstone spokesman hoped the following guidelines would help tourists prevent becoming involved in similar episodes:

  • Pets may only accompany people in developed areas and must remain within 100 feet of roads, parking areas and campgrounds.

  • Pets must be physically controlled at all times: they must be in a car, in a crate, or on a leash no more than six feet long.

  • Pets are not allowed on boardwalks, hiking trails, in the backcountry or in thermal areas.

  • Pets may not be left unattended or tied to an object.

  • Pets may not be left in a situation where food, water, shade, ventilation, and other basic needs are inadequate. Pets may remain in vehicles for short periods of time, but we recommend that someone stay behind to personally ensure their well-being.

  • Owners must bag and dispose of pet waste.
