He's a beauty! I'm jealous! I am sure you'll find him a beautiful spot in a forest where he can show off his lovely self. I've rarely got a fox - once in Nova Scotia, and once in Olympic NP. The Olympic fox was grey and black. The Nova Scotia fox was a more fairy tale orange with black markings. I saw a small fox in California once near Pt Reyes but it was almost pitch dark so no pictures. I adore foxes, can you tell?

My count so far since January.....think I have finally caught all the ones that keep digging under my house and take up residence (have found no new holes for a while now)...That is the top of my have-a-heart trap behind the greenery. I live in an old established suburb in the middle of the big city so am amazed at how many critters can find a place to live, it is not wooded at all and most homes are tidy.

That is very impressive! where do you take them? I understand that the animals have moved back into urban areas much more since Covid. I haven’t noticed a change here but I’m right beside a 20 acre forest so they have plenty of space. My so, who lives in the middle of downtown Nashville, has acquired as tenants a pair of groundhogs, a pair of coyotes, a possum, a raccoon, an armadillo and a bunch of rabbits.

Hard to get a shot of these- good work!
The gray fox population is waning throughout its range. A neat species; the only arboreal canid.
Coon hunters are partly responsible for their decline. Their hound will tree a gray fox as happily as they will tree a coon - an the hunters kill’em outta spite!
