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 ??

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.
