Fox Family

For the past 2 seasons the fox family has not successfully raised their litter of pups due to coyote pressure on the den. The last successful season they had was 2012. In 2012, the fox parents were proud to announce the birth of four pups (kits). We enjoyed watching them grow as the weeks went by. They loved to play with one another and with mother. They especially liked wrestling with mother! Finally, the day came when it was time to leave the den. Both mother and father herded up the pups and kept a close eye on them as they ran around the Christmas tree field and through the woods. Below are a number of pictures of the pups and mother fox.
