This character was very relaxed

A fine looking beast. Although I understand the underlying idea, I’m still saddened at the cavalier and brutal way that foxes are treated by most people in Australia. (In some cases – such as on Phillips Island, where they pose a grave danger to the penguins, I understand the need to eliminate them as much as possible, but in general the treatment seems to me to be extreme and even deranged.)

If this is a tangent I beg to be excused, but foxes are a hot topic at my workplace:

Apparently there are adults who need to be told explicitly that it is a bad idea to pat a fox.

Terrific picture–and I like your others on Flickr too!

Fox’s thought balloon: You interrupted my nap for this?

Lovely shot. Fox looks very healthy as well as relaxed. My spouse says no raccoons in the house but I know she’d be OK with a fox.

J-D – my younger brother once got bit (slightly) by a fox (at the zoo!), when he tried to pet it, but in his defense, he was 5 years or or something like that. At least those in that story didn’t end up like people who try to pet buffalo in Yellowstone National Park often do!

‘I gave it a pat and he chomped my hand’: Students bitten by fox at UNSW”
They may be cute, but are still wild animals. (Although I suspect it had been fed and mistook the hand for a treat).

“Petabyte” describes every puppy I’ve known.

And for now, Hazel and Bigwig can probably relax a bit as well. Great pic.
