Are there red fox in the Rootstown area? And would two little pups be traveling together? If so I think I might have seen a couple. I told a couple people and they said they saw them in the same area.

I know there was a den of 6 and a mom at Sandy Lake in rootstown i even fed them a couple carp from a bowfishing trip, and the three weeks ago i saw 4 little ones on rootstown rd before the curve almost to summit rd don't know if it is that same family but its within a mile of where the den was. So yeah there are red fox in Rootstown, really they're all over this area and probably everywhere else i've seen lots of them.

There are tons of red fox in Rtown. Usually you only see them at night but but sometimes in the day. I live on Kline and if you look in the fields at night you will see fox eyes glowing in your lights.

A little off the original subject, but I have been seeing more and more red fox every year. Hopefully this is a sign of them making a comeback. I know they have always been around, but around my area(SW OH) it seems the plentiful coyotes had them pretty much wiped out.

Cool pic, Freyed. I was in the garden a few weeks ago and had a red trot out of the wheat across the road within 30 ft. of me!:) Thats as close as I've been to one that wasn't in a trap or called in!:D I saw one hit on the road on my way home from work yesterday and my wife had one run across in front of her within a mile of where the one was flattened. All of these sightings are VERY encouraging. I am with you, BP1. I think the 'yotes had them run off. Gray Fox are another story here in NW Ohio. I haven't seen one in over 10 years. A game warden told me that distemper hammered them a few years back when the **** were infected with it. Even though fox tend to be more high strung than coyotes or grays I think they are slowly adapting to urban sprawl and co-exhisting with coyotes.

I was talking the other day about all the Red's I have seen during the past two years. Several road kills this year also.
