EULESS -- The McKee family lives on Foxbury Drive, and now they know where that name comes from.

Michael McKee said an adult fox had been living under his daughter's playhouse in the backyard, but Thursday his daughter came in the house with a surprising discovery.

"She said, 'Daddy, daddy, there's babies!'" Mr. McKee said. "And I said, 'Babies for what? The fox?' And I look, and there's one, then there was two, then there was three, then there was four, and now, there's five."

The family had no idea the adult fox was a mother. They say the foxes aren't shy or afraid of humans, but they don't like the family dog.

The dog is now banned from the backyard until the fox family moves on.
