Playful foxes

Foxes frolic in local pasture

Leaping, biting, sniffing, rolling and prancing through a pasture in the Lebanon area, a litter of six fox kits frolic in the early morning and late evening under the watchful eye of their mother. Horses trotting around the pasture don't seem to even notice the overpopulated fox den.

The mother races off behind a blind of willow trees when she sniffs danger, but the pups seem oblivious to any possible danger. They continue to hone their hunting skills with leaps and bounds towards each other ending in playful bites.
