In mid-June, one of the foxes found itself caught in a trap set by campus Physical Plant Pest Control staff (along with a racoon!). The fox was unharmed and released safely that same day. Here are some action shots of the perplexed animal just before its release. Photos by Richard Ness.
Before the fox family came to live at Van Hise Hall, they lived beneath Camp Randall Stadium, where they were briefly hosted by Buckingham U. Badger. In the photos above, taken in late February 2014 by Richard Ness, you can see staff searching for the fox den, the entrance to the den beneath the stadium, and fox prints in the snow.
