A Deadspin operative passes along an e-mail recently sent 'round the Bristol compound, warning ESPN employees about a fox seen prowling the campus, like some physical manifestation of lurking evil.

The e-mail reads:

Concerned employees have alerted us that a fox has been seen on the main and north campus. We have determined that the fox is being fed by employees. To avoid any potential incidents between employees and the fox, please refrain from feeding the fox or any other animals on the campus. Feeding fox, geese, and other wild animals encourages them to interact with people and can result in harm to the animal, as well as to your fellow employees. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Maybe they could lure the foxes away with a set of plastic decoy nesting geese.
