Fox in the Hen House! (...but we don't have a hen house.)

I heard a horrible animal-in-distress call yesterday. I went outside to look over the deck and saw two shadows through the woods with long tails. I thought they were coyote. The noise continued a bit further into the woods. I grabbed my camera and tried sneaking  closer to see what was happening. The cries kept getting further away and less often. I then saw two foxes following the sounds. This guy was just too far for my camera and my unsteady hand. I'm posting the shots anyway. I figure something got a deer and dragged it off and the foxes were following the hunt.
