Little Red
Red Fox--9,900 feet--Summit County CO--Photo by Klaus Hendrix -- In her second year, when she was assisting Foxy and her mother Mama Fox in raising their new family, Wiley Coyote came onto the red fox territory. Coyotes will kill and eat foxes, and baby foxes are especially vulnerable. Little Red lured Wiley Coyote away from the family den by barking and running ahead, then turning around and barking and running ahead, making sure that Wiley Coyote would follow HER instead of nosing around the family den.
