A well-positioned trail camera allowed photographer Marc Bider to capture exceptional photographs and footage of a family of foxes and their kits who have taken up residence in an old barn on his Elgin property. The foxes have been returning to the barn and their den to raise litters of kits since 2020. Bider originally counted nine kits in this year’s litter; however, two of the smaller animals have since died. “For all the foxes here, we have never lost a chicken to them,” he says.
