Family of foxes spotted in NW suburb

April 6, 2009 (ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill.) A mother and her six kits have been hanging out in front of an Arlington Heights home over the last few days.

The babies are estimated to be about four to five weeks old. They're not expected to stick around much longer.

Once the babies mature, mom will likely move her family to an area where she has more access to food.
