Red Fox

Throughout the twentieth century foxes started moving into cities.In 2006 it was estimated that there were 10,000 foxes in Oxford. City-dwelling foxes may have the potential to consistently grow larger than their rural counterparts, as a result of abundant scraps and a relative dearth of predators. While foxes will scavenge successfully in the city (and the foxes tend to eat anything that the humans eat) some urban residents will deliberately leave food out for the animals, finding them endearing.

Some researchers speculate that the urban fox is evolving into a different species from its countryside cousin, as it has a different diet of mainly man-made food, different survival skills (for example, the ability to cross roads), different places to live (under buildings rather than trees), a lack of their natural fear of humans, and a larger size.

Disease & Dangers

Red foxes are the most important rabies vector in Europe as well as acting as vectors in spreading erysipelas, brucellosis and tick-born encephalitis. Individual cases of foxes infected with Bacillus pestis are known which causes Human Y. pestis infection in one of three main forms: pneumonic, septicemic, and the notorious bubonic plagues.
