Rather obvious! THEN, humans bred HOUNDS…and dyes for 'PINK' furs… got 'something' to seat upon…(even the wife, if no hoss)…AND the game was ON!

LOL!!! Can you picture a prehistoric 'Hunt' ??? :) :) :)

I love Foxes…I feed them and enjoy seeing them…BUT never 'trust' a Fox to play nice with pets or chickens, etc… THEY CAN be buddies sometimes…but, They are Foxes! ;)

I have never see a Fox playing with a chicken… only if he want to eat it… (smile)
