Fox Cub

Most people enjoy animals. People who are fond of animals like baby animals even more. It's been a while since I've been able to post anything as I've been busy moving into and fixing an old house. Here's a fox cub I ran into during the weekend though. (I know a baby fox is properly termed a kit (or cub or pup) and a male fox is called a dog, a female fox is a vixen, so is it proper to call the fox pictured below a vixen kit?)

Great shots Derek...so cute! Was she dumped the mother?

Thank you. No the momma fox was shot after running off with 24 of the farmer's chickens (and died with the farmer's cat in her mouth). Eleven cubs were smoked from the den after realizing the fox was a momma.
