Every morning and evening, Joey and I walk in the cemetery, and we have not encountered this animal, but someone else who walks there regularly contacted me today to warn that there is a "fairly large red fox which is clearly in some distress wandering around the cemetery." It is described as mangy looking and acting disoriented and somewhat threatening. So far, to my knowledge, there have been no reports of the fox displaying aggression toward humans or dogs.
The fox has been sighted in both parts of the cemetery. On Friday morning, it was seen in the far corner of Cedar Park Cemetery, across Newman Road from the entrance to the transfer station. This morning, it was spotted up on the hill in the Hudson City Cemetery. Caution and vigilance are recommended for anyone walking or jogging in the cemetery, with or without a dog.
