From our neighbor Mary Gilkison:
"There seems to be a lot more fox activity in GM Estates this year. Our neighbors across the street have a fox den in their yard and we often see the adult foxes coming into our backyard looking for food sources. The foxes don't seem concerned about people and stroll down the street and sidewalks during the day. This afternoon, we found the paw of a small dog in our back yard. It had been freshly removed, though we didn't find any other parts in our yard. It might be a good idea to warn neighbors that keeping their small pets outside during the day may not be safe anymore. If the foxes are comfortable in our neighborhood, the coyotes will soon move in as well."
