Skulk of young foxes in a backyard digging in a veg bed

  • by

The video is described as a ‘skulk of kit foxes roaming and digging up Roma beans’. The word “skulk” got me thinking and I realise that it must be a customised way of referring to a “group of foxes”. This is what it is but I think that the word is insulting to foxes! I know that you can’t insult foxes but to put it another way, it is disrespectful and it reinforces the idea that foxes are devious. I don’t find them devious. I like foxes and I feed them. I love them actually and I want to care for them. I see nothing devious about them. I see animals trying to survive just like the human-animal. We owe it to them to help them but half the human population on the planet will vehemently disagree with me and I don’t care.

The video shows a young fox digging up what appears to be a bed of Roma beans in the backyard of someone’s home. That’s where the word “kit” comes from in this instance. As I dictate this a young fox has just wondered into my back garden and arrived at my patio doors. He is investigating. My cat went out into the garden about five minutes earlier so there is a distinct possibility that these two will meet up. I’m not worried because they will avoid each other. They won’t bother each other in my opinion. That is my experience. By-and-large and dog domestic cats and foxes are ‘passing ships in the night’. They know that they can hurt each other so why bother to get involved in a fight for what purpose?
