Red fox hunting outside our back door

Last night I had finished outside for the day and had come in to call it a day and sort out dinner.  Half way through the task of taking off my boots I heard a noise outside that I couldn’t easily recognize.  Upon reaching the back door the investigate I saw this red fox 20 feet from the door.  
Since all our chickens were already killed I went and grabbed the video camera instead of the shotgun.  There is some great video of it using its amazing hearing to try and locate a meal.  The kissing sound you hear towards the end of the video mimmicked a rodent distress sound.  It had heard me move and ran off.  I was able to get it to come back with that sound.
