This Gray Fox sighting comes to us from Nancy Phillips in Corinth, Texas. Nancy reports seeing these foxes in a vacant lot just adjacent to her apartment complex. She says that as many as five foxes live on this property, and that they were typically observed at dusk and early in the morning.
On one occasion, Nancy was able to photograph a juvenile and adult fox together. When the pair became aware of Nancy’s presence, the adult barked a warning to the kit, who then quickly retreated into the safety of some nearby trees.
Nancy enjoyed the antics of the foxes, and would sometimes sit on the steps of her apartment to watch them. Often the foxes went about their business undisturbed. Other times they did not appreciate Nancy’s attention, and they would communicate their displeasure by barking at her.
