Reader Gregory sent me this video of fox and kit and a brief description:
We had a female fox and her kits living under our garage here on the East Side of Milwaukee last year. I caught quite a bit of video. Here is one bit for your enjoyment.
And my colleague Steve Pruett-Jones called my attention to this winner in the 2012 National Geographic photo contest (via NPR):
Photo and caption by Micheal Eastman
Caption: With his exceptional hearing a red fox has targeted a mouse hidden under 2 feet of crusted snow. Springing high in the air he breaks through the crusted spring snow with his nose and his body is completely vertical as he grabs the mouse under the snow. Location: Squaw Creek, Park Country, Wyoming
He probably used the same hopping technique we saw the other day in the video of Foxes on a Trampoline
