I have been watching a pair of Red Fox courting for about one-half hour. The male would proudly sit high over the female, who was in a hunched sitting position looking up submissively at him. They would move about, lie in the sun, and just enjoy courting. All of a sudden they took off in a run, followed close behind by another male. I watched them running to and fro for about one-half hour longer before losing track of them. On Saturday from 6:00 AM until noon I watched a fox go by the house about a dozen different times before I did some research and realized it was mating season. My question is: will the two males fight, one killing another to win the female’s heart or will the one male just move on to find his own mate?
