I just happen to stumble on your website while I was looking for some information on the grey wolf.
My husband and I moved into our new house four years ago.
We are fortunate to have many wild animals around us.
We live at the end of a short cull de sac with a small amount of woods behind us.
We have seen fox, ( the babies playing hide and seek with one another)
deer, turtles, rabbits, coyote, mice, ground, hogs wild turkey ducks and now geese.
BUT we have also seen something that no one believes.
I was glad my husband was with me at the time, otherwise I would have thought I was nuts.
(well I am but not because of this. HA!) .
We have a rather large green lawn ( it was once planned to be a pool area)
and one afternoon sitting right in the exact middle of the yard was a large grey Wolf.
At first I just looked at it and felt confused. Was it a huge dog? A coyote?
I called in my husband and we just stood there at the window overlooking the whole scene completely mesmerized.
The Wolf sat proud and high like a NAI. Then, along come two beautiful young fox who merrily danced around the wolf.
It was amazing and neither of us could move to get the camera for fear we might miss something.
This seemed to go on for a very long time. Or maybe I was hoping it would never end.
Eventually the fox skipped into the woods on one side and the wolf went to the edge of the woods and urinated.
Then disappeared in the trees. A couple of nights later I heard him howling (and the dog down the street whimpering).
I have been looking for info for at least two years after this happened. And looking for the wolf since he marked his existence in our yard.
Every one we tell the story to always say we could never have seen it because grey wolves are extinct here. ( Stow, MA)
And they laugh at the part about the red foxes). Actually I found an article saying that there was a grey wolf siting a while ago in Stow.
And another saying a wold my travel with a fox but that doesn’t add up in other fact articles. They are not friendly.
A couple of nights ago we were trying to decide what movie to watch ( we watch movies when we are not watching wolves ect.) and I said out of the blue
Let’s watch Dances With Wolves. I don’t know why I thought of it and I have never seen it on TV. BUT the next night it came on!!
So of course now I am thinking about the wolf that people either don’t believe we saw and wishing for its return.
I was writing you to see if you had ever heard anything like that before. Or heard of grey fox sitings in the Massachusetts area.
And, if you are still reading this, thanks for your time and thoughts , if any.

I thought people might be interested in the clips of the Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament that ran on Boston television stations.
Here is the segment that ran on WBZ Channel 4.
Here is the segment that ran on FOX 25 TV=
The FOX clip has a nice interview with Noah from The Farm Bar & Grille. But the best part is the impromptu dance party in the same clip by my friends Heather Fraelick and Gina Briguglio. Somebody call Dancing with the Stars!
At the 36 second mark of the video judge Joe Bastianich says of Christian’s dish- “That’s the kind of dish that wins competitions like this one.”
