RE: RE: Tennessee Gardener Article/Now Wildlife

Donna, don't worry.  While the whole neighborhood is aware of the fox
and his family, no one has tried to approach them, feed them or even
photograph them.  While he tries to engage our dog, we do not let
JohnBoy follow - although at 140 lbs. more than that small fox, I don't
fear for him; just don't think it's a good idea because you're right, of
course, this is a wild animal.   

We're in a rural area and, I believe, everyone in the neighborhood has a
healthy respect for and knowledge of the wildlife that we share our
lives with.  But we all do enjoy watching what goes on with all the
critters around us.

I suppose I should read all of these messages before commenting... but
folks please remember these are still 'wildlife' no matter how cute and
friendly they appear.

There are some natural instincts that will prevail. Many of them will
act friendly to lure their prey to a different area (den) and we don't
want to discuss what happens then... called the food chain :(
