Spring Reds

 This seems to be the spring for red fox in western Wyoming. It's not that we have more of them, but we've got a few litters that have been more visible than usual. Fortunately they aren't near our lambing grounds, so they aren't in areas where conflicts would be expected.

I spotted six kits at this den at the entrance to a cattle ranch along a county road.

Do foxes actually kill sheep?

Yes, fox kill newborn lambs (not adult sheep).
