I know it is dangerous to ask for opinions or introduce new debate topics.Just wondering how many folks think this is just a young Fox having fun. How many would have been concerned about seeing a wild Fox going nuts in the daytime and shot him ??

The last one i saw was in the back of my truck going through 2 bags of trash. Fouled me off at first but laughed later. I wouldn't have shot him.

Someone probably made a pet out of it. He's not mad or rabid
He's just playing.

Yeah he's just screwing around. Seems to like the feel of the trampoline material. Not a shootable offense.

looks to me like he is itching. onset of mange maybe?? a fox out in the daylight is not normal behavior. something is not right with that thing.

Yeah, that dont seem right too me. I cant say that I would shoot it but I sure would go our making some noise to run it off. I wouldnt want it around when I let my dog out. Thing could have early rabies or something.

I have enjoyed watching them the few times I've seen one hunting in the day time.This one looked skinny but not Rabid to me.I would have to think twice if I saw one acting like this in my backyard . \:\)

We have a litter of red foxes that we watch from our house almost every summer. 3 to 5 kits and they are visible any time of the day, adults too. Too much is made of seeing wildlife in daylight.

I would not shoot & just enjoy. It appears that it is just a fox that has gotten used to people & is actually playing, it also seems that it likes the feeling of the trampoline material.

Looks like he's got ear mites or something. Maybe beginning stages of the mange. He doesn't look like he's having fun to me, he looks miserable and trying to get some relief.

I live in the suburbs, and I too have seen healthy fox families out and playing in daylight, romping around backyards. Not uncommon at all for foxes that have no fear of Man.

Suburban wildlife, with no fear of Man, will do crazy things. Last November, this mature buck in my neighbor's driveway let my daughter and me get within 15 yards of him as he tended an estrus doe. He tended and chased that doe around our backyard for almost 2 hours:

As the owner of a one-year-old GSP, the answer is obvious. I could tolerate that until it started chewing on the spring cover. Then, the pellet gun comes out.

That is what I was thinking, It appeared to be itching real bad. I wouldn't have shot it but I don't think it was having fun. The trampoline material must have felt good to the itching.

He's just playing, no point in shooting him.

i haven't seen a rabid fox in over 40 years
and they sure don't act like that
more like the zombies everybody's talking about until they sense movement
