Welcome to Fox Friday, the weekly display of the best of the Fox Cam photos from the previous seven days in the bone yard, a spot in the city of Midland, Texas, which serves as a feeding station to lure wild urban foxes. Let's proceed.
Wednesday night was squirrel night. There's Old Crooked Tail giving it a good sniff, then feasting on finely served raw squirrel. Scrawny Tail - far right - got the leftovers. Scrawny Tail could be from the same gene pool as Old Crooked Tail, but this one didn't get the bushy tail DNA.
An observation about squirrels: Squirrel night this week was about the fourth time the critters have dined on road kill squirrel in the past couple of months. Typically the squirrels' limbs were severed, and the body parts were placed in five different spots within the feeding zone so that one carnivore wouldn't cart the entire carcass out of view. But here's an interesting phenomenon which I only realized the other day. These squirrels were killed in the streets around town, not near the feeding station. However, there are no longer any squirrels scampering around the area like they used to. It's possible that either the feral cats, the wild foxes, or both, have developed a taste for the furry rodents and may be keeping the squirrel population in check. If so, there's some good that has come of this project.
