The Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes)
The Fox is very much a creature of the night preferring to remain inconspicuous often thought of as shy but urban foxes are vast becoming as tame as cats. They often live in pairs or small groups like families consisting usually of the mated pair and their young, often the young will remain and help with caring for any new kits.
Being a chicken keeper means that we often have a fox or two hanging around the farm at night. Very often I can hear the shrill call of a vixen. When we first moved to the countryside my hubby found it quite funny when one night I woke him up saying I could hear a woman screaming outside, it was actually a vixen calling, it was so eerie.
