During my "commute" to work the day before yesterday, I encountered unexpected "traffic" in these three fury creatures. I was checking the wheat for cereal leaf beetles (afraid we have them) when I saw a fox trot away from me. Looking closer, I saw a pair of ears moving in the grass. Soon, a young fox appeared. Then a second. And then a third! They playfully tussled with one another for several minutes before I had to continue my journey to the office, at which point they scurried back into their den to the right. I have seen the adult fox a couple of times this spring nearby. I never guessed there might be a den. I better tell Ian to double security at the hen house.
