Foxes

Wild foxes have become more visible recently as they continue to move into more urban areas, to escape coyotes. Interviews with people who focus on these beautiful animals: a nature photographer, a biology researcher, and a farmer who tries to protect foxes from traffic. Also,the Tribal Historian of the Meskwaki people explains why they are called The Fox, which leads to a history lesson about how relations between the Meskwaki and Europeans unfolded, and how Meskwaki government was organized.
