Thursday 23 June 2011: Fox on the run
I heard my husband yell "Fox in the yard! Fox in the yard!"
We don't usually see a fox roaming around in the yards here, but I thought I had seen one walking through my neighbors yard the other day. It was from quite a distance, but it really looked like one to me.
When Mark said he spotted on today, I grabbed my camera, the umbrella and ran outside. He was behind our shed, then headed over to my brother-in-laws garden behind our house. It was sprinkling a bit, so Mark held the umbrella to cover the camera and we quietly walked back there.
It had something it was wrestling with in the tall grass, but we couldn't figure out what it was until it came out into the open again, walked through the opening in the stone wall and headed over to the farm. It held a small woodchuck in it's mouth and ran off into the woods.
