We Love Our Wildlife, But...Part Two

When we recently discussed the damage that the Great Blue Herons have been inflicting upon the greens, there was no desire to have this turn into an on-going series.  However, over the past couple of weeks one of the course's other residents has decided to have some "fun" on the putting surfaces.
Two spots on #6 were dug up Tuesday and Wednesday night.

We have spotted a red fox digging in the bunkers on several early mornings.  Based on the footprints and damage, it's a safe bet that this is the culprit digging holes in the greens. 

In the bunkers, the fox acts more like a cat than a dog, as he will play with a vole he has caught, throwing it up in the air, then eventually burying it in the bunker.  Apparently foxes dig both to find and bury food.  Whichever our fox is interested in doing, we'd really appreciate it if he would choose any place other than a green.
