Photo of The Day: North Point Fox

North Point residents should be on the lookout for a confused fox.

Reader Dan Wiles sent in this photo of a sick -and-mangy fox that has been spotted in daylight hours (foxes usually are nocturnal) in North Reston.

Wiles said the fox has been seen around Baldwin Grove near Buzz Aldrin Elementary School and may have an injured right front leg. He has alerted Fairfax County Animal Control.

Mike, that's great, thank you! If you can't reach them, let me know - they're all volunteer and always short-staffed and needing more people to help. I know a couple of people who might be able to connect you with the right person.

Yo! Mike. is that a cigarette in his paw? No wonder he's mangy. Better put that signage project on rush!

Thanks for your willingness to help Mike C! If you have any questions, I'd be happy to share my experiences too. It was in the same area....could be using the same den. Good luck and thank you!

Don't know if this is the same fox, but we used to have a rather mangy fox living in my nbhd. This critter had three legs (or at least walked like it), and a tail that looked like black tufted rope with a sharp 90 bend (clearly his tail had been broken and not healed straight). I figured he'd been hit by a car or mauled by a dog - or something - perhaps multiple times. I saw him on and off for several years. I haven't seen him for over a year.... he is/was a real survivor.
