Wildlife photographer chronicles lives of foxes in suburbia http://mnatu.re/1dcfVmz pic.twitter.com/3K11ORMyy2
I thought now that the grey fox has about weened her kits that she would have exhausted her food supply and moved on. Though I don't see her much anymore (probably because she is teaching the kits to hunt) I still hear her out and about catching prey every so often.
Maybe a neighbor is putting a bowl of cat or dog food outside without thinking and inadvertantly feeding the rats which consequently supplys the fox with prey.
The 'City of London' and it's rat population will continue to grow.
Foxes may help so may birds of prey.
It's a terrible idea to feed foxes, or other wildlife.
Don't put food outside for you pets, or the cute foxes. I hope none of my neighbors are doing that here which of course will keep the grey fox around my backyard and primarily results in feeding the rat population.
Neat pict doone.
I like that photo :)

Foxes in the UK
Foxes moved into cities in the 1930s and for four decades, until the 1980s, local authorities shot and trapped foxes in London in an attempt to exterminate them. This failed. By the 1980s there were an estimated 33,000 adult foxes in urban areas. Scientists believe populations have not risen significantly since. The highest densities of foxes are now found in cities but the Veterinary Association for Wildlife Management believes urban foxes still account for only 14% of the total population.
A Wikipedia estimate
In 2006 it was estimated that there were 10,000 foxes in London. 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
People >>>> Foxes at least in London
What is it that's said,
Humor is the tight rope of tragedy.
You crack me up.
I've seen some horrible pictures of suffering foxes with the mange i don't know how widespread it is, but it is somewhat ironical that urban foxes seem to stay in better health.
haha yes they do, and at least they don't nick your wallet like humans do.
