April, 2007, I was privileged to observe a fox family living around our house. They had babies under a trailer in a den previously used by skunks and groundhogs. The babies were moved far into the woods under a huge rock. I was allowed to stand very near and film, mostly on one perfect day. I haven’t seen any of the foxes since that summer.
