A North Salem resident has made a new group of friends, or should we say, a new family has moved in her yard and made friends with her.

Early every morning and again at dusk, Ellen Burke said a family of foxes come and play in her yard.

Of course, she doesn't approach them but says she does enjoy watching them and they have not caused any problems or approached her.

The family of four likes to lie around on the lawn or chase each other. She's also seen one running the yard with a rabbit in its mouth.

"They run away when they see us," she said. "They are wonderful to watch."
