Our friend Don Bindler sent us these photos and wrote: “The Easter Fox, not the Easter Bunny, but just as cute.

“The fox was almost eradicated from the Island due to mange, but they’re making a strong comeback. There are five kits in this den in the Silver Beach area. Pictures taken Saturday at the den.

“Happy Easter, Don.”
