Found under a bridge among domestic dog tracks. However, gait, behavior, amount of hair in pad, and minimal register of rear metacarpal pad suggest it may be a fox? Based on size and shape, my guess is gray fox, rather than red fox.

Rodent tracks, found under bridge near running water. Possibly a Western Harvest Mouse (Reithrodontomys megalotis) based on asymmetry of hind feet? Or possibly a vole of some kind?

Description

About 7 pairs of salmon.
There is a very rough access point to Bear Creek about a 3 minute walk upstream from the Rotary bridge in US Cellular Comm. Park. The creekside entry point is marked on the left by an orange staked flag in the gravel alongside the Greenway path. On the right are a fence and greenhouse facilities and a bunch of plastic nursery pots. Recommend good walking shoes or better. Site can accomodate about 5-6 people as the bank is a little steep. Big cottonwood across the creek on the right and gravel bar across the creek on the left.
