And this one is a beauty. Had you? Look at the lovely face of it. I just wanted to share. These two foxes were seen together in the backyard of someone in Evergreen, Colorado. Then a lady on Nextdoor shared them. And now I am sharing them here. So gorgeous they both are. But the black one..I never did, did you?

No, I had no idea foxes came in a black variety. It might be a mutation. I would have been less surprised to see an albino one.

I have never seen a black fox before. When we was at a park once in Colorado this red fox grabbed a duck and took off with it. This lady called the police that the fox stole a duck. I did not stay to see if the police showed up to chase down the fox or not. That goes under stupid is as stupid does.

@jstory07 that is so funny and I agree not very smart of the woman. Can you imagine the laugh or eye roll at the police station over that one.

@RebeccasFarm The arctic fox is white. I've seen clips of it diving headfirst into the snow after mice or whatever.

I´ve only seen foxes at the zoo. The black one is very rare. It looks rare but watching closely, it looks like a fox for its ears and nose, also its eyes. The one thing missing is its tail

@RebeccasFarm It´s definitely a fox. Now, there is a better angle of the fox and it resembles a black fox

Well it would have to be a pack of them to kill a human, but I would not doubt it is possible. We also have the coyotes here and yes they will attack humans.

@Hannihar I have a literal nut case living upstairs from me. He runs a foot pedal for a sewing machine in the night..while I am trying to sleep. He also is running a business out of the apartment and drags furniture across the floor constantly.. I am contemplating how to handle this and actually get something done about him.
