We went for a walk at Cheesman Park in Denver a few days ago and we saw a city fox hanging out in the park attracting the attention of a lot of the dogs being walked around the park. We both thought someone had let a pet go because the fox looked like a dog on a glance - it was lying down in the grass and we couldn't see its tail. It was being very cautious of the golden retriever barking at it not twenty feet away. It got up after a minute or two and just trotted across the lawn towards the other side of the park, apparently in no hurry. It was my second urban fox spotting within a month. This isn't a photo of the fox we saw, but it's drpaulsen's photo of another Denver resident fox and it looks a lot like the one we witnessed.
