Wild animals displaced
The fire also displaced scores of animals who make the park home. Coyotes, bobcats, raccoons, squirrels, possums, skunks and deer all live in Griffith Park.
"We saw them fleeing," said William Ramirez, park ranger for 19 years. "They fled down the hill. Now we are seeing some on the streets of the park."
Rangers also found some dead rabbits and snakes this morning in the burned areas. The snakes just had babies recently, so rangers expect to find more young snakes who didn’t make it.
