Famous Foxes in Popular Culture

Famous Foxes

In honor of the famous Elvehjem Neighborhood Fox, I thought I would create a list of other famous foxes in popular culture with the help of Wikipedia. In case you didn’t know, the  Elvehjem Neighborhood Facebook Group documents all sightings of the neighborhood fox. If you haven’t joined before you should join now so you don’t miss a  sighting. The other wild animals I have seen or heard around the neighborhood are wild turkeys, I heard an owl and saw bats flying over the garden.

City of Madison has some information regarding wild animals if you see an orphaned or injured animal you can do one of two things. Call the Dane County Humane Society (608) 838-0413 or the Emergency Clinic for Animals at (608) 274-7772 for further instruction.

Extra big THANK YOU to our neighbors Telise Johnsen and Cristi Carlson who shared their pictures of the fox.
