Northborough – While they were at home, following the COVID-19 social distancing recommendations, the Grandpre family had an exciting day on March 30 watching fox pups frolicking and playing near their gardening shed. They discovered that an entire fox family had apparently been living there.

“I like how playful the kits are! Our dog Charlie wanted to meet them!” said Ryan Grandpre, who is a freshman at Algonquin Regional High School (ARHS).

“The foxes are so cute and entertaining to watch. We were surprised to see them in our backyard!” remarked his sister Maeve, who is an ARHS junior.

The Grandpre’s also spotted two adult foxes.
