Captivating facts about foxes (with photos)
Sara Ramsden of Channel 4 describes a new three-part television program as "everything you always wanted to know about foxes but didn't dare to ask", starting Monday, April 30, 2012. Before you see Foxes live: Wild-in-the-City, read these 10 interesting facts (complete with sweet photos) about foxes, beautiful animals that merit more respect:
The foxes are members of the puppy group. Females are known as " vixens ", males as "dog fox" or "tod" and babies as "pups", "kits" or "cubs". One group of foxes is known as the "lurker" or "leash". The only dogs that can pull their nails back like a cat are foxes.
They also have foxes with more cat-like pupil-like features than the round ones that other canines have. The foxes are many different kinds and they are the most common kind of foxes in the game. The foxes live almost everywhere - in the country, in towns, in woods, in mountain areas and meadows.
Polar foxes live in cool climate zones in the far northern hemisphere and Fenec foxes in the northern Africa waste. If the puppies are young, their dad chases them and returns meals for the whole group. Unfortunately, some gruesome humans still chase foxes and call it a ridiculous "sport". There was a bill passed in England and Wales in 2004 banning the chase of foxes with hounds, an action in which a hunter rides a horse following a series of hounds following the tired wolf before tearing the beast apart.
There are other ways for a hunter to chase and slay fox. The fox chase with hounds is also allowed in many other countries such as Ireland, North America and Australia. The fox eats almost everything, as well as grapes, vermin, spiders and small creatures such as a mouse and a bird. When they live in town, they ate garbage left out by the population.
The foxes have a nice coat, which is why the heart less fuzz industries breed both trapped foxes and trapped foxes in the great outdoors. Gray foxes living in North America are the only ones who can clamber on a tree! The house of a chestnut is known as the "cave". Chasers often try to frighten foxes from their caves by returning hounds so that the chaser can snipe them.
The foxes sometimes stay in the cave and are hurt or slaughtered by the cats. The foxes show great care, adaptiveness and brains in rearing their young. In May 2009, the Daily Mail reports that a chestnut child was trapped for two whole week before being saved by the RSPCA.
