Early last week, a young fox running around Hyde Park caused quite an uproar throughout the community.

The juvenile female red fox was caught in a leghold trap that broke free from the ground. For a few days, it roamed the town with the trap still on its leg, and when a game warden finally captured the fox and took it to a veterinarian last Thursday, it was too late. The animal had to be euthanized because an infection had set in, and the leg was badly damaged.
