Today when we came back from our stomp (Couldn't truly call it a stroll with 3 inches of snow...), we noticed that the abandoned neighbour's house had a vehicle track right up to the side entrance, inside the porch. Hmmm...growlmy first thought that the snowmobilers had gotten a little crazy, but no, these were the wheel marks of a car or truck...and the entrance door was wide open! OMD!
Growlmy called the police, because she did not want to add her own tracks to the ones there in the snow, and she was worried that there might be someone lurking in the house...
So they came, and re-secured it, but there did not appear to be anyone there who was not supposed to be there...
Meanwhile growlmy spied a red fox sauntering around in the same house's back woods area. It looks like he/she has a den nearby, because all of a sudden it just disappeared.
I wonder what it is eating...the other neighbours a few doors north of us have chickens!
The fox could be nabbing himself some dinner! They let their fowl run free, so perhaps the fox is able to snag one now and then...Mmmm...too bad he doesn't know how to use a BBQ for the chicken!
I guess, now I will have something else to patrol our fenceline for...can foxes dig very deeply? Our fence is buried about 12 inches, so it is hard for me, but foxes dig dens for themselves...I do not want this dude coming in my yard. He is so small, he might even be able to slide himself under the gate...
Growlmy says this is the first fox she has seen right here in a long time. She has seen an odd one now and then in our area, but not right by our home.
This little guy/gal is very fluffy with a red fur coat and a furry bushy tail. At first growlmy thought it was a large orange cat, but with binoculars, she could right away tell it was a fox!
Mr or Mrs Tod...

We dont know a lot about foxes but they can be mean. Stay away! What's with all the wild life lately, hawks, fox, rats....us dogs have to take back over!
Woof Woof, Buddy
Be careful with that fox, MJF!!! We don't want you gettin hurt!
Mr Tod...aka Fox, is out of reach, he is in the neighbour's yard area, and there is a five foot high fence, also buried a foot...6 foot fence in total...and I think my peeps use the gates enough that he/she would be repelled by the humanoid smells...
Hey maybe we need to send him over to help Zaidie with his rat problem! BOL!
Say HI to the fox for us, MJF!
Sounds like you have a lot to keep you busy! Tire tracks, a fox. Maybe there will be more! Chicken! That sounds good. Too bad there isn't a BBQ - just kidding!
OMD it sounds wike a real life Facespace game right in ur bery own back yard. BOL.. You tell day foxy dat hims bedder not mess wif a tough terrorizer wike you or ur Growlmly will hab herself a pair ob new slippers!!!
I'd be barking that fox real good if I was there. All I have to bark at here is snow and there's PLENTY of that!
Accordin' to our neighbor there used to be fox sightin' out our way. But ma's never seen one in the 15 years she's lived here.
COOL! :o) We've got a fox living around us - we've seen him twice.
MJR your smell will probably keep that durn fox away. I'm not saying that you stink but you know......Bol!Bol!
I didn't see/smell or hear Mr Fox, today.
But since I do make doggy communications all around my fence, he would likely not dare to 'trespass'!
No-one else tried to bother the neighbour's house, either!
yes, please be very careful with that fox out there!!
