It was suggested that I drive Spearfish Canyon and this was an easy sight along the way. I visited early in the morning and it was very pretty. Just a skip across the road. Stop if your on the road.

I'm sorry, I really don't know that answer as I wasn't aware of any animals in the area... I was just basking in the upward beauty of the falls and taking many pictures of it...
