Video: Adorable Fox Pups Spotted in Oxford



    Richard Belton sent this in and we wanted to share it. "We saw an amazing site today in Oxford, CT. A baby fox family appeared to be waiting by the den for mom to return," he wrote. This is from Richard and Amanda. (Published Thursday, May 8, 2014)

    Foxes are not unusual in Connecticut, but we usually do not get the opportunity to see fox pups playing in their natural environment.

    Richard Belton and Amanda Kennedy shared this video of fox pups in Oxford on Wednesday with us.

    We loved it so much we wanted to share it with you.

    According to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, Connecticut has both red and gray fox populations and it is not unusual to see foxes during the day.

    DEEP warns residents not to feed foxes and to feed your pets inside. Clean up fruit that drops from trees and bird seed that falls from feeders.
