Red Fox on Mount Pleasant in Caledon
Here is a wild red fox I saw on the way home from work at Mt Pleasant & Castledurg. He had a mouse in his mouth and was walking along Mt. Pleasant for a long while, I followed him for about 1-2 km. I didn’t think I would be able to get a good shot of him as its kind of hard to operate a camera and car at the time but luckily he stopped for a brief moment as we got closer to Castledurg and I was able to snap the above picture. I didn’t even know he had a mouse in his mouth until I loaded the picture up on my computer.
