Hey, Jane here. So, I now live on Shell, Annie, and Santa’s island … or at least, an island very much like it. Well, guess what? Last week I think I saw a red fox speeding alongside our chicken yard. The chickens were b’gacking — making some upset noises. It could have been a cat … we have several around here. The animal was slightly larger than cat-size, and rust-red in color, with white. I didn’t see the tail — that would have been a dead giveaway (one way or the other!).
My harp partner, Deb, and her partner told me that they’ve seen foxes where they live. So now I know for sure that foxes live on the island!
I don’t know why I’m surprised, or think it’s such a miracle — foxes are clever creatures that adapt well to human life. They live in cities, and in suburbs — just about anywhere that humans are! They are opportunists, and they are secretive, knowing how to keep under cover.
You may have wild foxes in your own neighborhood. Feel free to share your fox stories here!
