An artist's interpretation of the fox

The Black Fox of Salmon River is a canine cryptid near North Westchester, Connecticut. First documented in an poem, by American poet John Greenleaf Whittier [1], the black fox is claimed to have a pelt so dark enough that it would drive someone mad. According to superstitions, seeing the black fox is bad luck.


Some accounts portraying it as a physical manifestation of darkness and mystery, while others emphasize its swift and elusive nature, making it difficult to capture or study.


Silver Fox

A silver fox

Silver foxes have been seen in the wild. Silver foxes are a melanistic variant of red fox, which does live in Connecticut. Melanistic animals are about as common as albino animals, where instead of not producing enough melanin, the body produces an overabundance of melanin, turning the skin and fur a darker color.
