HELP!!! Should I Be Worried That I Am Seeing Foxes On The Beach & Sand Dunes At The Jersey Shore, NJ?! [POLL]
Well, wasn't I in for a surprise when taking a walk on the beach with my dog, Carolina last week.
One of our new trends during the weekend is to take a walk on the beach at night since Mom doesn't have to be up for work the next morning.
Side note: if you are super stressed, anxious or depressed -- which is 100000% normal at this stage of the pandemic -- I would strongly recommend giving this a try. This time of year, the sky is so clear and the stars are almost always visible.
Last week, we were walking along the beach when all of the sudden Carolina is just staring at an area of sand. She FROZE.
At first, I was perplexed because she usually only acts this way when other people or animals are in her vicinity.
But then I saw movement.
An animal scurried to the top of the sand dunes and I was only able to see an outline of the creature and I am going to bet money it was a fox.
Then a few days later, there were two foxes that I saw running to the base of the sand dunes just up ahead from where we were.
I tried to capture photos but it was dark and man, those suckers are FAST so obviously...I was unsuccessful.
But I'm confused. These two instances are the first times I have seen foxes on the beach my entire time living at the Jersey Shore.
The beaches may have some wrappers and what not but it's not like its a hot food destination for animals right now.
Is this normal? Am I supposed to do something when I spot a fox on the beach?
If someone could let me know because I got so SPOOKED!
Unless....foxes are usually friendly?
The more you know...am I right.
Now I am thinking of Swiper from Dora The Explorer...so that's my cue to exit.
Have a lovely day all.
