I saw an adult fox today. 😀
The crows were hollering like they always do when there’s a fox afoot, and a moment later, a big red fox walked into the yard. He looked taller and leggier than the one I’ve been seeing, so maybe it’s the kit’s father.
He saw me and took off fast, so he didn’t get to interact with the kit. But for now I’ll assume the little guy has a surviving parent. Yay! I was darn near ready to trap it and hand it over to a wildlife rehabilitator.
I’ll keep an eye on the little one from a distance, and as long as he looks healthy I’ll assume all is well. I do hope they stay around. With foxes instead of woodchucks in that hole, I might even have a garden this year.
