Please don't feed the fox and her pups

Recently, a fox and her eight pups have moved in to the culvert in front of our house on Bay View Drive. It has become a popular destination in Jamestown.

We don't mind that everyone stops by to take a picture or two but we have had several people throwing food to her and the pups. We have two children and are concerned that she will become accustomed to receiving handouts, potentially leading to her or the pups biting one of our children or one of us.

We are asking that everyone refrain from feeding her and the pups. The mother fox is hurt and has been all winter, but she can still hunt for food. We have witnessed it.

Thank you. Christy Podunajec Jamestown
