This life-size sculpture depicts a red fox making off with a ripe apple - an autumn delight for foxes. According to the artist:
“The red fox is a true omnivore and its diet ranges from insects, rodents, small birds and mammals to a wide variety of plants including grasses, seeds, and fruit. Individual foxes, like humans, have food preferences. Apple orchards are a major food source for foxes each fall. Foxes will take more than they can eat and store the excess for the future. They dig a hole, deposit the apple and then use their noses to push the dirt back over the apple.” --Veryl Goodnight
