Follow the Fox

I saw a lot of animals whenever I took the shortcut through the forest to get back to camp, so I wasn’t scared when I saw a fox one evening last summer. I had come across plenty of foxes in my life. But I knew something was different about this one right away.

The fox stood in front of me, a safe distance away, and met my eyes. We both stood still for what seemed like an eternity, staring at each other.

The fox turned and started to walk away. Suddenly, the fox stopped, turned its head, and looked back at me. I took a few steps forward and the fox starting walking again. Whenever I stopped walking, the fox stopped. Whenever I walked, the fox continued. For some reason, this fox wanted to be followed.

I continued to follow the fox as it began to walk quicker and then started into a trot. I started jogging to keep up. Suddenly, the fox stopped by a ditch and looked over at me.

I climbed into the ditch and passed each baby up to her that she took to safety. After all the babies were safe with their Mom, I climbed out of the ditch and brushed myself off. The fox and her babies looked at me as if to say, “Thank you”, and ran into the forest. I felt like a hero.
