If you have a fox or a family of foxes (also known as a skulk) living in your ditch, under your deck, porch, shed, or patio, your family’s small animals may be in danger. Foxes can smell prey such as small mammals from a far distance which makes these predators very dangerous. They can also cause property damage depending on where they choose to den. Let the wildlife experts at Animal Remover help get them off your property.

Fox Nuisance Concerns
Foxes are classified as a nuisance animal species due to their habits of scavenging for food in urban areas, threatening domestic animals, feeding on livestock, and living under porches, patios, sheds, and decks. The most common fox complaints include foxes killing chickens, stealing pet food, and frightening your four-legged family members.
Since foxes are opportunistic scavengers, they can often come into conflict with people. It’s much easier for foxes to target chickens in a chicken house than other animals they may hunt. In the wild they usually eat large insects, snakes, small rodents, pet food, and garbage.
The fox is a predatory species of canine weighing in at about 5-14 lbs and reaching lengths of 21-29 inches. They mate from February-March and after a 53-day gestation period, 4-5 kits will be born in April-May that can live 6-8 years in the wild.
Foxes are dangerous, so you should never feed a fox or try to pet a fox. They are possible carriers of rabies and a bite can cause an infection. Call Animal Remover right away if you find a fox on your property.
