Foxed in?




















Yes, I live in Oklahoma. No, I do not live in the country (or a teepee or a log cabin, if you're really clueless). I live in the middle of town, in a neighborhood, in a city with ordinances such as all dogs must be fenced in or on a leash.

Apparently the foxes of our city do not have to live by such rules.

This one has been roaming our neighborhood for the past several days. I caught a pic of him on the way out of our backyard. Isn't he nicely camouflaged in the first picture?

Now this little critter is about the size of a beagle, but for all I know he could have the personality of a tasmanian devil when provoked or tempted by the sight of a small toddler. Yikes. I think my little guys are going to be playing indoors for a while...

YOu know my in-laws have a cabin in Minnesota. They spend their summers up there, and we go there every summer for a week. But this year they said the foxes have been really bad, they are coming closer and closer to people and not being afraid. Many people had to keep their dogs inside. I find it strange that you guys are having the same problem in Oklahoma. Very interesting.

Those are very cool pictures. Did you use the boys as bait? ;)

I would be concerned about the kids being outside, too!
