Baby Foxes are soooo Cute!

Today Mary & I did the Jot 'Em Down ride.  21 miles through beautiful bluegrass horse farms.  About 2 miles into the ride I see a furry object on the side of the road.  Not knowing what it is I slow down & move over to the other side. Once I got a closer look I saw that it was 2 baby Red Foxes.  Of course we have to stop & investigate. 
They were the most adorable things.  They were watching us from the safety of the drainage ditch but after a minute or so they came out.  We were able to get pretty close & take some pictures.  Aren't they cute?!?
Mary talked to one of the locals that drove by.  They said they have seen the two recently but without their momma.  We were worried about them being so close to the road.  Mary called a few local animal rescue places to see if they could take them in.  Unfortunately no one would come get them but she did find a place that would take them if someone brought them in.   After we finished our ride we went back to see if they were still there but they were gone.  Hopefully they have found a safer location.  I am pretty sure Mary will be going back to check on them though!
