The Morning of the Fox

Doggies, Charlotte NC, PetsLayla Comment

So there's a fox den in our backyard. Here's what happened. 

BACKYARD IN CHARLOTTE, NC - 8 AM

Like any normal morning, the birds are chirping and the squirrels are scattering. LAYLA and FINLEY run into the woods at the back of the yard. 

MALE FOX

RAAHAHHAHRAWWWEEEE! 

ANGELINA

LAYLA! FIN! Come! 

MALE FOX

RAAHAHHAHRAWWWEEEE! 

LAYLA and FIN come, but FIN circles back into the woods. LAYLA and ANGELINA stand still, horrified by screaming fox. 

MALE FOX

RAAHAHHAHRAWWWEEEE! 

MALE FOX runs away. FIN whimpers and returns to the woods again and again. LAYLA poops, unconcerned. ANGELINA investigates and sees small fox pup. FIN does not want to eat pup, but wants to play with it. 

ANGELINA makes LAYLA and FIN return inside. 

END OF SCENE.

It turns out that there is a fox den in our backyard, and this was just the first of our encounters. 

What do you think about foxes? Ever had any fox encounters?
