Welcome to Fox Friday, a collection of the best photos of the urban foxes from the previous seven nights at the secret feeding station in Midland, Texas. It was a busy week, so let's get to it.
Two feral cats present the biggest obstacle to a fox's full meal. They always seem to get there first. Last Saturday night there was a confrontation.
Fast forward to last night. Fox approaches as the cat eats. Circles. The glutenous cat doesn't even look up. How humiliating. Tip to fox, team up with another fox and attack from two fronts. Aren't canines supposed to be pack animals?
Concluding this week's Fox Friday, I think this is the one I call Scrawny Tail. I hate to get too personal, but here's the rear view. Another female. Recall that the two killed on the street recently were both females. Maybe there's a patriarch among the bunch, and these are members of his harem. But so far I've yet to see a fox here that has shown us a view that would suggest he's a male.
