    Saw this little guy at about 12 today. I don't know what he was doing wondering round the street in the middle of the day though. We pulled the car over and watched him for a bit, then he ran off into a garden.

    Sorry for the bad photos, I was on my phone, and not sure how to zoom. :/

    Looks like rather a large fox.
    Cubs are just started to disperse and fend for themselves, this one may have had a bad foraging time the day before and have an empty tum which sent it out and about. Or maybe someone had put out an irresistible food source :)

    I don't think urban foxes always follow the rules ;)

    Yes he was quite big actually.
    And I know people in that area that put out a bowl for the foxes sometimes, so I am assuming that's what he was after.
