Fox Fight


Fox Fight

On a dark gloomy afternoon in the Lamar valley in Yellowstone's northern range, two male foxes scuffle over territory and breeding rights. The fox on the bottom made a beeline for the other male the moment they spotted each other about four hundred yards apart. Ten seconds of ferocious biting and kicking ended with the instigator lying defeated and dejected in the snow. He stayed there for half an hour after the fight was over licking his wounds and feeling sorry for himself.
