Red Foxes – 2005

Observer: Ilan Fisher

Observation Date: 2005

Observation Location: Back yard

Common Name: Red Foxes

Scientific Name: Vulpes vulpes

Comments: My wife saw the mom walking in our back yard. A few days later, I saw one of the babies standing beside my swimming pool. I thought it was a strange looking cat; and then I thought, dog; and then I thought, fox. He scooted under the stockade fence. I climbed up and saw that it was living under my neighbor’s shed. I tried to get a photograph but it was too far away for any lens I had.

In the end, I set up a ladder, sat on top – checked on and off for a few days – with my video camera; and then I saw them. I had to use digital zoom to get these shots, that’s why there is so much camera shake. That was the last I saw of them. I suppose the mother moved them every few days. And what’s that they were eating? Well, not my cat – probably somebody’s.
