    Thanks for sharing your sighting!

    Though they’re spotted much less frequently than their cousins the Red Fox and Coyote, Gray/Grey Fox do live in woodlands and open brush land in northeast Ohio.

    (Locally, a roadkill fox was collected on SOM Center Road in 2018.)

    We’ll put up a trail camera and see what it spots!
