With Love Comes Sadness

After a little while of watching me and glancing at the body of her kit, the mother fox felt safe enough to cross to my side of the street to check on her kit. She crossed the road and approached the body cautiously, nuzzling it with her nose as if to prod the kit to wake up.

After lingering for a few moments she then walked back across the street. As I watched I noticed that she again looked as though she was going to cross the street again, but was frightened by cars going by. I decided to move the body of her kit to the opposite side of the road so that she would not have to cross the dangerous street again.
