Yellowstone alert: 2 dogs dead and man burned after jumping into a volcanic hot springs in Idaho

A hiker was severly burned and his two dogs killed after the canines plunged into a hot spring and he jumped in after them to try to save them.

But the weirdest thing is that the deadly accident occurred in the Panther Creek Hot Springs, a popular spot known for human bathing, just on the edge of the Yellowstone supervolcano magma chamber.

Is this temperature anomaly is it another sign of intense magmatic activity at Yellowstone National Park?

Panther Creek Hot Springs are situated right at the edge of the giant Yellowstone supervolcano magma chamber in the Salmon-Challis National Forest.

Temperatures had apparently grown dangerously high… And as you know, Idaho is a place where volcanic activity and geothermal features are intertwined.

Forest managers are unaware of a similar incident ever occurring in the 107-year history of the Salmon-Challis.

The National Forest is 4.3 million acres (1.7 million hectares) wide and contains numerous hot springs.

The Salmon Wilderness near Challis Idaho is situated along the deep Western edge of the Yellowstone supervolcano magma chamber. Yellowstone alert? Make the links.
