Awesome story. Red foxes generally pair for life and are pretty good parents. I've watched a vixen coax her teenage reprobate down from a roof by chatting to him and constantly repeating the route from the next level down, over and over for well over two hours. Once he plucked up the courage to jump from the house roof to the garage roof he was soon greeted by the vixen & got a nip from his mum as she led him back to the ground. I love them so much.
