PHOTO: Foxes Seen Around the Cape
A pair of grey foxes were photographed in Cape St. Claire over the weekend.
Facebook user Marcia McBride Rullman posted pictures of two grey foxes perched on her fence in Cape St. Claire on Sunday.
In the comment thread that followed, Capers' reactions ranged from frightened to adoration.
Serena Boyd, whose cat Nila had been missing for nearly two weeks until appearing suddenly over the weekend, said she was glad her cat was indoors now. Other neighbors with outdoor animals shared similar views.
According to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the grey fox is omnivorous, and is the only member of the canid family that can climb trees effectively.
