I saw some wild canines last night. About a block from my house.
To me they looked like foxes. Small. A pair. Under a street light. One with a very bushy tail, and one with no tail at all.
A neighbor of mine said she spotted a coyote at the same place. I imagine she saw the same critter I did. I vote foxes. But hey, we're both city folk, what do we know?
Whatever they were, I've never seen them around here before.
Maybe they were gray foxes, which are native to Illinois, and which can climb trees.
I thought that I would never see
a canine that could climb a tree.
All the squirrel in the area
are on notice: please bewarea.
