I was just telling Pat a couple of days ago how much I enjoy walking around the LSU lakes near my home. I always see some interesting wildlife, mostly birds like ducks, egrets, and herons. Plus there are many beautiful houses along the lake with flower gardens and giant live oak trees.

Today as I was walking past the LSU President’s House on Lakeshore Dr I noticed some creature curled up on the front lawn. And then it stood up and I realized I was looking at a fox! And then another fox came running across the lawn. They seemed unfazed by the presence of a human nearby, though they did keep their distance.

Researchers at the LSU School of Coast & Environment have posted signs in the area asking the community to take pictures and either tag on Instagram or post to their Facebook page with the location. They have also posted signs with information about foxes and asking that people please NOT leave dog or cat food out for the foxes.
