Red Foxes are found in the entire Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic to North Africa. It is one species which has multiplied rather than diminished near human habitation.
I was quite close to the fox for these photos as it devoured a squirrel.
I have also seen Red-tailed Hawks with squirrel prey here.

This morning’s group:
The icicles now fringe the trees
That swayed in summer’s gentle breeze,
When summer days were fair. – Dora Read Goodale (1866–1915)
Red Fox looks to be in very good condition. Beautiful
