Foxes are one of the most elusive and beautiful creatures on planet Earth, capable of invoking wonder and awe in all who see them.

If you get to see a fox in the wild, consider yourself lucky, because most people never, ever see them.

I for one have only seen them running across the road in the middle of the night, wild-eyed and fearful of my oncoming vehicle as my headlights shine forward toward the side of the road.

I did see a red fox on a golf course once here in my native Michigan, but as soon as I turned my head to get a better look at the remarkably beautiful creature, it had vanished into a log before taking off in the other direction, never to be seen again.

Mountain Man Serenades Fox in Increasingly Viral YouTube Video

Foxes are hard to get a good look at and even harder to keep around, but there’s at least one unique way to keep them nearby according to one mountain man in an increasingly famous YouTube video: music.

In the video below, the man can be seen playing his best tunes on the banjo, as a curious fox meanders about near the edge of a mountain horizon.

When the man continues playing for his audience of one, the fox seems happy and calm for the first time in quite awhile.

Then, the fox starts heading in the other direction, just as quick as he came to visit the man for his private concert.

It is during this time that the fox realizes he has stumbled upon something special.

Instead of running back into the woods, he decides to stay by the man’s side, and the YouTube audience is the beneficiary because this is one of the most awe-inspiring videos the world has seen in a long, long time.

It shows not only that music unites both man and beast, but also is a feast for both the eyes and the ears.

The video has been viewed over 900,000 times as of the writing of this article, but we think it’s only a matter of time before it skyrockets up to the one million level and beyond.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think.

We absolutely love foxes here at Green Living Tribe headquarters, and we think that there are few animals that we consider to be their equals in terms of beauty and the overall level of wonder they provide.
