A Limping Coyote, a Visit from a Fox and Spa Day for the Donkeys & the Bunnies at the Lazy Vegan!
It was awesome to have an amazing visit with a fox at the Lazy Vegan! The little guy or gal wasn't very skittish at all and allowed me to follow (at a good distance) while he/she wandered our property! And in other wildlife news, a scrawny and limping coyote showed up on the critter cam. We've seen this one over the years but this time I called Wildlife Rescue and sent them the video and past videos to see what they suggested doing (video posted below). After reviewing the videos, they suggested to let him be for now - but if he shows up and is worse, they want to set a live trap and bring him in to amputate his leg and treat him for mange before releasing him back. Poor guy (or gal) - I really hope he gets better - he's somehow managed to survive since he first showed up on the critter camera in 2013!
The donkeys and bunnies "enjoyed" their spa day with hoof trims and nail trims (no, they didn't enjoy either one...but it is necessary - they DID all like the treats afterwards!).

Safe and sound indoors!
