I was so surprised this afternoon when a fox came prancing through the backyard. I still don't know if he crawled under the fence or if there's a hole where he got in. Here are pics of our neighborhood fox. A neighbor has told me about this fox who lives close to their home near the pond (this is across the street from us). I've never seen it until today. The kids, of course, wanted to feed it, catch it, and keep it. We should be calling animal control, but we opted not to after he stayed for almost 3 hours and finally curled up in a ball in the snow watching us eat our dinner!
