Foxes are now frequently seen in towns and cities, where they often occur at greater densities than in rural areas.
- Apart from the breeding season, foxes live mainly solitary lives
- Fox cubs are born in late March-April in a den dug in the earth or they can be situated under outbuildings. After about four weeks, the cubs are old enough to emerge from the den and begin exploring the outside world. The cubs remain with their parents until mid to late summer when they disperse
- Foxes live for about three or four years but many young foxes are run over
Like all animals foxes can suffer from a variety of diseases. If you find a dead or dying fox you can register and report it on the Garden Wildlife Health Website.
