VULPES VULPES

On the way home from an on ice session a month or so ago, I noticed something on the highway a ways up.  I asked Colton, are those cats?  As we got closer they looked towards us and then ran into the ditch.  While, the cats turned out to be a family of little fox.  There were about 5 of them, one of which immediately ran into the den.

Colton and I spent some time on the side of the road watching them play and groom each other.  Unfortunately we also noticed a dead one in the ditch not far from the den opening.  We didn’t get close enough to see if it could have been Mom, but I think it was to small to be her.  And the way they were playing on the highway, I’m not surprised that one of the them may have been hit.
