Fox Hunting

I walked out to the side of the house today and saw the young foxes that live next door. I walked back into the house and got the camera. I was rewarded after a few minutes of standing still with the following picture. The little guy was about 8 feet from me when I took the picture.

We have had foxes with kits where we lived a few years ago. With a game camera we got a photo of a red fox in our yard. We love to watch the wild life in the area.

We think it is a mole that the fox caught. I have notice a lot less rabbits since the fox moved in last year. And I think the number of chipmunks is down, which is a really good thing. There are 3 young ones this year. This is the second year for the den and last year she had 5 little ones - but I didn't see them. These 3 were out most of the day today, most likely doing what mom told them not to do.

Great photo! Foxes are not a problem. The decline in rabbit population is likely due to cats as much as the fox.

they are a real problem if you raise chickens as i do, they will kill even when not hungry. the female has a very frightening call that sound almost like a human being tortured. we have 5 right up the street and wish they could be re-located...they can clear a 4 foot fence without any trouble. i also worry about them carrying rabies.

As you should be. Red foxes are cute to watch but they're not something I would want living in my backyard.

We had a family of foxes stay under our shed for about a week. Very interesting. Urban foxes are on the rise. Unfortunately, recently the coyotes have moved into the area and have wiped them out. See link:

Coyotes ARE a problem, they will kill a human if they are hungry, and the opportunity arises. There was an experienced hiker killed by coyotes in Canada last year. I remember when Indiana DNR released coyotes into the wild here, now (40 yrs later) Indiana has hunting seasons for them.

I used to go out prowling for foxes at night. Always woke up w/coyotes.
And no money.
So I got a motorhome, and now have a nice place to sleep.
And no money.
