I walk around our country block (4miles) 3-4days a week and the last 2 nights, I've been cut short because of a fox. Last night there were 2 of them! They are scared of me, and I of them, but I see them and turn around and head for home instead of finishing my walk. I worry about my safety, should I just start carrying my mace, or do you think I just ignore them and keep walking they will leave me alone? The night prior the one was in the road looking at something, and last night the 2 of them were in a field and then saw me and crossed over into a corn field. But it was same area as the previous night. I really don't want to change my route, if I go any other way, I have farm dogs to contend with and this route I have been lucky to have nothing like that!
