BELVIDERE (WREX) – While wild winter weather has dominated the Rockford area for much of the season, Friday was a beautiful day. And a skulk of foxes took advantage.
A 13 WREX viewer in Belvidere sent us a series of photos she took Friday afternoon as two red foxes took in the sunshine in her backyard.
While you don’t ordinarily see foxes out running around like you do other wildlife in the area, National Geographic says “red foxes adapt well to human environments such as farms, suburban areas and even large communities.”
The viewer who sent us these photos said they had being seeing small footprints across their yard over the winter, but did not know what animals they belonged to. The viewer says the foxes were out enjoying the yard for a few hours Friday.
