Young red fox at a den beneath a cabin's deck -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/201 ... foxes.html

It was really tempting to put a camera trap there. But, having lost a camera last winter, I'm not about to donate a camera to the lowlife types who frequently break into isolated cabins.

The wiley red fox, excellent footage and stills, they seem almost tame. Is this recent footage, because our red fox (European species, Vuples vuples) breeds in the dead of Winter, July and we don't see cubs of that size until Feb or March?

Yes, those were taken on May 2nd. Our fox breed in February so these kits are probably about six weeks old. Our red fox are the same species as the red fox in Europe, the one that was introduced down under. There's some debate about red fox in North America, some think it was introduced from Europe (and some were) while most believe it was native to the north and west and expanded its range south and east as forests were cleared by early settlers.

Great video Woody, such cute little rascals. I can say that because we don't have them up here on the Island.
