Info on fox

1 post in this topic

I would like some help learning about fox and how they den up.

I live on the west side of Bald Eagle Lake in northern Ramsey County.  The homes here are built on quarter acre lots and there are a lot of trees.  A quarter mile west is an open area with about 600 acres of hill and trees with some open fields.  There is a lot of wildlife there including coyote.

In early June people started seeing a fox with 4 kits.  Apparently a den had been built under a shed that sits close to a swampy area.  The fox would come out around 8 pm and play around a pile of dirt right next to the road.  The would hang around until dark, running and hiding if a car came by.  About the end of June they all disappeared.  There has been a fox that is seen frequently during the winter out on the ice for a couple of years.

Is it likely that the female would continue to use this den year after year and have her litter there?  People have gotten a lot of enjoyment watching these critters and some want to know if it is likely that she will return.

Thanks for your time.

Tom
