Mother fox relocating her baby from her flooded den

Snowmelt in a warm March day forced mother fox to perform an emergency rescue mission of her cubs from her underground den behind my chicken coop to a new location. Story after this shot: Sensing our absence during the week we were away on vacation, mother fox and her two cubs dug a hole under the fence around my chicken coop, had a big party with all of my chicken. Despite of this sneaky act, we still think she is a beautiful animal.
