Two young red fox kits play near their den in Prentiss Woods in Bangor on Tuesday, May 19, 2009. “We encourage people to view the animals from a distance,” Mark Stadler, Director of Wildlife for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, said Tuesday. Stadler also said not to approach the animals and that neighboring residents should not bring in food sources from outside, especially at night. According to DIF&W’s website, red foxes are born between March and May, have litters from 4-8 in number and are typically nocturnal, shy and nervous. printed on August 23, 2017
