A fox takes a snooze in the snow in Stratford Saturday

A red fox was seen taking a nap in the snow in Stratford Saturday and did not seem the least bit disturbed by vehicles whizzing by on the nearby Trans Canada Highway. it may have appeared to be half asleep, but as soon as the photographer started to move  closer the fox was up and scurrying to the nearby woods. Thirty minutes later it was seen sleeping in the same place.

Geographic location: Stratford

    This is like Millwork, Vancouver as well. Nature is just beautifully amazing.

    This is groundbreaking stuff. Stay tuned for the story about the seagull eating a french fry and the crow picking around the garbage dumpster.

    If we hadn't marginalized all the foxes' living area with irresponsible land use, they wouldn't move into urban areas. We see foxes daily in the city...has there ever been a reported attack on people-just wondering

    I just moved out west for work and seeing this article makes me miss home even more.. PEI: where the biggest news stories in the last year were when Jimmy forgot to pick up milk on his way home from work and aunt Marie spotted a fox sleeping on the side of the road.

    I live in Stratford (near the RC Church) and see foxes daily, they make their way through people's yards and don't seem to be a bit afraid or shy of anyone or anything!

    It is really too easy to get photos of these critters as too many people feed them. I went to take a wildlife photo for a photography class I am taking. All I had to do was drive to Cavendish, and one came running up to me. That shouldn't happen. Glad I got my picture, but people really need to think before giving food to wildlife. They become dependent on the easy meal.

    Very nice photo. We live in a rural area but rarely see a fox.

      SYLVIA, that is sad but true. We really dropped the ball educating Islanders about fox and this is the result... you don't get to see one if you are rural! It is of the greatest irony.
