I read a British gardening list, and the people there complain about foxes
a lot - they say the cubs dig up the potatoes and play with them.  They've
actually seen this happen.

Foxes, in the UK, are suburban and urban creatures; very bold.  Not like
here. In the UK, evidently foxes fill the ecological niche that I believe
is mostly filled by raccoons here.

But even a country-fox (as opposed to a city-fox) could play with potatoes.
