Whose Den?

A female fox visited our yard a few days ago. The pair have denned under our barn twice.

It was a gloomy day, and Buffy and I had been in the house too long. So, we walked a loop of our backyard.  She saw this wooden “creature” before I did.

It looked like a creature of unknown origin.

It was about 8-9 inches long. Now I’ll be able to tell if any animal, like a fox, goes under the barn.


We woke to a damp drizzling morning. I hurried out to check to see if the wood had been moved ….

and, obviously, it was — only, the chunk of wood isn’t the same one I photographed yesterday.

This mystery will require my attention often.

  1. Beautiful photo of your fox. How exciting to have them nearby.


  2. What an interesting mystery, I look forward to the next instalment.


  3. Odd that they’d bother with a piece of wood. Maybe it was in their way.


  4. This is quite interesting. I thought the wood looked like a small lion cub at first glance. It obviously bothered your seasonal arrival enough to clean house. 🙂
