The year 2020 was quite something for the number of fox sightings near me in Ancaster, Ontario. Check out this video of several young foxes in my backyard, filmed May 20, 2020. They seem to really love the new mulch we put down.
Sometimes one of the adult foxes would bother my cat. No actual combat, but some serious grandstanding. I think the fox just saw my cat as competition for food and wanted him to leave. Um no, it’s you Mr. Fox who needs to move along. Beautiful creatures though.
Here are a couple of photos taken in the same year. In the first photo, you can see the fox has a small rabbit in its mouth. I posted this observation on iNaturalist here.
This year, 2022, has seen no foxes at all where I live. Boom and bust. I’m going to go with the opinion that they’ve found greener pastures nearby.
