(CNN)It's not every day that a fox sighting makes headlines. But when it's a once-in-a-century sighting of a rare Sierra Nevada red fox, it merits a mention.

Researchers on staff at Yosemite National Park made the find during a five-day trek through the backwoods of the park.

That's when they saw them: two images of the fox, one from December and another in January, trotting through the snow.

A convicted hit man who killed for the Mexican Mafia who is serving decades in state prison was given a police escort to Downtown Los Angeles Wednesday afternoon to address a group of local police chiefs and wealthy business leaders, authorities acknowledged.

Sources said the purpose behind the appearance of Rene Enriquez was to give first-hand insight to the group about the inner-workings of the criminal enterprise. Enriquez, who is known as "Boxer," worked his way up from enforcer to shot caller in the organization also known as La Eme before his arrest and conviction.
