“Foxes are opportunists. That is why they are not an endangered species. In fact, they find the proximity of humans an advantage. They’re excellent mouse catchers and even eat insects, and so they help to keep agricultural pests in check. At the same time, however, they are famous for their raids on unprotected chicken coops. Although primarily carnivorous, they will consume some vegetarian fare, especially fruits.
This fox is not, at the moment, helping himself to a farmer’s produce. These are wild grapes, part of the wild abundance found in fox country every fall.”
