Off to feed the fox...

A few years back I was able to volunteer for a local wildlife rescue here in Mancos. During that time I became totally fascinated with the Red Foxes in this area. We are fortunate to have a pair of these animals that use part of our property for their daily hunting. My dog Maggie and I have been taking scraps to them during the harsh Colorado winter months. Now it's just plain fun to watch them out there prowling for their own game (they are also feeding 3 little kits). As a result of our past contributions, we are somewhat trusted by these clever little animals. A few days ago we walked within 1o feet of the mother fox as she lay waiting for a gopher to emerge from its hole. They are beautiful creatures, and are very entertaining to watch.
