Brookfield Fox Story

Several years ago our dear
 Laverne, now deceased, and I were able to capture
two sick, male foxes in our suburban neighborhood using a
Have A Heart trap.  We took  them to the Wildlife in Need
Center, in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, where they were treated
 for mange, a deadly condition. After several weeks, the older
fox was well enough to be released. Click the link
below to view a video of that amazing moment.
  He was let out in an area that was on the
edge of his pre-capture range and took
off like DC Comics' The Flash.
