    Ask your self this question. "How many people that I know trap"? That is why you see large fox numbers.

    There is a thin section of woods with a small trickle creek between a parkway and our section drive. Several foxes are regularly seen on the greenbelt. Last year they came onto our patio and ate cat food.

    I just recently learned that an animal control officer shot the one that had been hit by a vehicle (that I wrote about last year).

    One ran out in front of my bike on the canal path in Yardley yesterday afternoon. Looked at me for a moment before slipping back into the underbrush.

    I wish he would eat the Canadian geese that infest the area.

    Red is grey and yellow white, But we decide which is right, And which is an illusion.

    A red fox has a light “skunky” smell whereas a grey fox smells like a billy goat.

    One time I was trapping a Game Lands and someone stole a red fox from one of my traps. Later, I saw 2 Game Wardens talking on a parking area and stopped just to mention it to them. The one asked me how I knew it was a red fox and not a grey fox. I said: “because I got down on my hands and knees and smelled the dirt”. They both burst out laughing and the one said: “I always knew you trappers where nuts”.

    I've seen at least 2 families on my land and I think both sets have kits/pups (3 and 4). I just saw one a couple days ago sneaking off from my neighbors house with a HUGE chicken in it's mouth. I saw a bunch of white in the middle of some bushes and it was the fox attacking the chicken. It was amazing how fast it killed it. No wonder large dogs can kill a flock so quickly if they get in the pen.
