Dogs must be on leash but what about foxes? While walking the cockapoo in Betty Virginia Park on Friday night RRBJ discovered an urban fox edging through the trees that line the south side of the park. A pink jacketed jogger said foxes have also been spotted roaming the 40 acres at RW Norton Art Gallery.
Should you be scared if you run into a fox? Albert Hillel, an Englishman who's written a book based on 20 years of observing the urban fox says, "If the fox was a man, I think he would be the kind of man you would like your daughter to marry. He is clever, reliable, a good providers and he doesn't seek a fight."
Your best chance of spotting one of the pointy faced creatures? Late afternoon because foxes are primarily nocturnal. If you get a good picture of one, send it along to RedRiverBlogJam@gmail.com and we'll post it.
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
