BREAKING NEWS: Fox Sighted on Corralitas

While walking the dog around 5PM today, I noticed a strange looking cat walking through the lot below 2636 Corralitas. But it wasn't a cat, it's a grey fox. Its body is about a 10 to 12 inches long, with a long puffy tail, grey with red markings on its chest, small head and pointy ears: NOT a coyote. It may have a den in the brush in the middle of the hill. There's a trail that's been worn along the edge of the green bushes, which I saw her walking along, leading to what appears to be a den. I've heard scattered reports of foxes in the Semi-Tropic Spiritualist Neighborhood, but this is the first photo a neighbor snapped. A number of neighbors witnessed it this afternoon.
