A vacation turned tragic Friday night when a Washington family hit a bison with it's truck and lost its beloved two-legged boxer who is known around the world. 

Gary Walters, his fiancee Amanda Giese, and her two children were traveling from Yellowstone National Park to Island Park around 11 p.m. when they struck a bison on U.S. Highway 20 at mile marker 403 near Idaho Highway 87. The family car rolled multiple times, and two of the three family dogs were ejected from the vehicle. 

Duncan Lou Who is a two-legged boxer born with his rear legs fused in an X shape. His legs were removed because they were twisting Duncan's spine.

Duncan first rose to fame when a YouTube video was posted of his first trip to the beach. The video has been viewed nearly 7 million times.
