Ah.

Around here they're quite wild, and very shy of people.

I did once see a fox curled up on a lawn, in the open, near a road, in broad daylight. I stopped the car and backed up (it's not a heavily travelled road), rolled down the window, and spoke to it: I was afraid it might have been hit by a car, or be ill, though I didn't know just what I was going to do about it if it was in trouble. The fox woke up, took one look at me, realized it had been noticed by a human, and ran for the woods.
