Humane Wildlife Services in Washington, D.C., recently responded to a call about a family of foxes living beneath a backyard shed slated to be torn down.

To humanely evict the fox and her seven 5-week-old kits, workers first tore up the shed's floor to make it unusable, and then they collected the young foxes and placed them in a reunion box.

Watch what happens when the mother fox returns.
