Native red fox cam-trapped in Sierra Nevada

California's  introduced red foxes have fared better than our native Reynard.
The codger hasn't managed to photograph either.

This summer however wildlife biologists succeeded in camera trapping a red fox in the Sierra Nevada and used chicken-in-a-sock to prove it was a native Californian.

Read about it here.

Chicken-in-a-sock is not yet available in any fast food joints here, but it could catch on.   

Thanks again to Jake K. for the heads up.

Wow, I was actually up at Sonora Pass that day. Wish I'd gotten a sighting. Maybe next time they'll spot the red fox and the wolverine at the same sock-bait station....
