We have a red fox female and a male in our area
they are very healthy and since we have no small animals
out side..we are enjoying watching the mother come by
once or twice a week..

What has become a problem the last decade is that people are not taking care of their domestic dogs and letting them roam killing our beloved cat, and killing the deer and the fox and wildlife.

We live in a beautiful area rural and you would never think of this situation with dogs...but we have it..guess everyone does ..

We kept our dog in a fence and it bothered no one else or other peoples
yard pets..

but the majority
of dog owners do not fence their yard and do not have a dog house and bedding for their yard dogs.. I wish they did..

Very cool fox, wish I had some to watch. I do get coyotes now and again. Re dogs in rural areas - we've always kept a largish outdoor dog and it has been helpful to keep deer and coyotes out of the yard. Sorry you have had problems with them - sometimes dogs will 'pack up' and cause more mischief than a solo dog.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Baby foxes are kits, cubs or pups. I like kit.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
