A new resident of Conway, MO - a red fox?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Debbie DiFonzo - United Country VIP Realty, SW Missouri

Red foxes are common in the State of Missouri and mostly nocturnal. So, I have to tell you I was surprised to meet one early this morning on a street in Conway, MO.

I had just taken photos for a BPO and was getting ready to put my camera away. Before me, at the stop sign, sat a fox. Pulling up, I watched. She wasn't afraid. She actually looked a little perplexed that I was driving down her street.

Population of Conway, MO: 781 plus one

Good photo Debbie, Funny, I saw a red fox the other day but was gone before I had a chance to grab my camera. I also saw a coyote in downtown Nashville too! The critters ust have insomnia...

Debbie, What great shots, I am so glad you posted them!  What an adorable animal, he really is pretty (and looks very scared).

Jesse and Carole - It really was amazing - she was in no hurry really. I know the photos make it look like she was running away, but she had stopped on the side of the road before climbing up on the rock pile.

Michael - When I first glanced over I thought it was a coyote but at second glance, a fox. The coyotes are thick here this year. Wonder if they'll bring back a bounty on the ears?

Thanks for shaing.  I've seen many in the Alpharetta area in my last home.  They are so beautiful.

Jack Climer Realty -  I have had many "firsts" living in the Ozarks - it's been so fun! And, you're right, I try to keep my camera close at hand. 

I wrote a post a month or so ago, my kids really think they saw a bear cub in our back yard. We don't live too far from a State Park so I wouldn't be surprised!

I've never seen a fox before - unless it was at a zoo.  It actually looks kind of pretty.  Prettier than the coyotees that we have here.    Thanks for sharing your pictures.

Hi Debbie...  She looks a bit hungry to me!  Better make sure that all the chickens are secure (they do eat chickens, right?)!

Living in the city it always makes me stop and take notice when I see posts like this.  It's a part of life I don't get to see.  The closest I seem to come is the random racoon rooting theough the trash.

Debbie - perhaps she had been to a party at the local chicken coop and nodded off then was rudely awoken by someone trying to collect the eggs she ate?

Debbie - that reminds me of a client telling me that he didn't mail the deposit check because there was a bear that was preventing him from leaving the house.

Judy - You may be right! There is nothing to prevent someone from having chickens in the city limits. Tasty morning snack!
