I've decided that it was a coyote and not a fox. I saw a red fox this afternoon on the deck - it peed on my son's hockey net! It really was quite beautiful and very bold. What I saw this morning wasn't red and was much bigger - probably 3 times as big. We have a fenced yard, but they just hop it very easily. I have called animal control before - actually the first time I saw a coyote on the deck last year. They said to call Division of Wildlife which I did, but they said there was nothing that they could do. They asked if I kept dog food outside - I don't do that, but others in the neighborhood might. I've always enjoyed seeing the wildlife in the yard, but now I'm nervous when I go outside with Roxie. I've taken her out a couple of times today and she isn't as scared as she was, but I can see she is cautious. I'm trying to be calm, but watchful. Roxie doesn't like to poop on the pee pad and if she doesn't go outside, she has been trying to sneak into the dining room and do it. When I see her do that, I take her outside right away, but she is holding it, I think.
