I saw the fox again today. I can't believe it's just out hunting in broad daylight

I hope not but because it's hunting squirrels and they are active during the day, it's not too unusual for foxes and coyotes to be out during the day hunting them while they have the opportunity. My back yard is flourishing with squirrels but I've noticed they aren't as active as normal, I think the foxes is eating them up.

They are a very nice little animal.

You should warn your neighbors with cats. They are no real risk to adult cats. But to kittens yes.

Urban foxes are likely eating garbage, a bit of a concern.

They can also be a risk to very small children, though seldom.

It is actually a good sign. Coyotes and foxes seldom cross territories. You are much better off with foxes.

I called animal control but it's not a free service to have it removed. He said they are better than raccoon's, raccoon carry some crazy diseases and I really enjoy the fox sightings anyway.

Oh leave it alone? I am not urban. Though my mother had an urban fox.

Leave it alone and enjoy it!

Just avoid actively feeding it. Tell your neighbors about it. Well you do not have to give it a death sentence, with them, tell them you think a stray dog has been in your garbage. Tell them to be cautious with garbage.


This rabies and disease stuff is blown miles out of proportion with these critters.

Look up your state, where ever it is, and look up the incidence of rabies. I bet it will not be too high.

I have coons, skunks, foxes, porcupines here on my land. No one has died of them yet. But I do know there are also coyotes near by as as a cat owner that does concern me.

I am thankful for the coons and foxes and skunks being here, actually. Sooner them than coyotes. On the East Coast some of those will attack people and are a wolf crossed breed. They are different from Western, and smaller, coyotes.

Re: FOX in my urban backyard!
I woke up to an ominous feeling this morning because the sky was glowing pink, and my bedroom was a different color. It was eerily quiet too.

I got up and drank my coffee, about to open up the sliding glass door to feel the temp and sitting in my backyard is a beautiful red fox! I've never seen a fox in the wild, only dead ones along side roads but I live in an urban area, extremely urban, homeless people live 2 blocks away from me. I couldn't believe my eyes! I woke up my husband and called for my little girl to come and see the fox. It was so big too, this was the last thing I ever expected to see in my backyard.

I just can't believe that we have foxes in my neighborhood! I've lived in forest areas and never seen a fox. This was so close to home.

Now we have the total camping experience with the fire pit my husband built and now the fox! My little girl said "I hope we don't see a bear next!".

What other wild animals can I expect to see in urban areas? I have squirrels and hawks and just saw my first raccoon last week too. I smell the skunk sometimes but never seen him. But the fox just seemed so out of place.

in the last months many wilderness animals will be prowling around where they'd least be expected to be seen

I have dozens of the little Oregon foxes on my property, they have a den back my MIL house. They do climb trees, yes, but are harmless, yours probably has a den nearby, look on a bank if you have one, don't tell on him, enjoy!

I was out looking for the den today and I think it may be burrowed below a wood pile we have out in our back yard. Our yard is organic (no grass just weeds) so we've had lots of animals just feel more comfortable back there I suppose. Since we've let it go we rarely go out there except to pick wild strawberries and I noticed a pile of animal poop, looked kinda big for the cats but they bury theirs.

There hasn't been any natural disasters in my area to the poster that mentioned the cataclysm.

Thanks, I just looked up the rabies cases and there have only been 4 confirmed in my county, that doesn't sound too high. I did once see a rabid raccoon so I know they act crazy and I don't let my kids out there alone anymore. I'm just going to enjoy watching him from my windows.

Re: FOX in my urban backyard!
A lot of people don't realize foxes are actually a canine species that can climb trees.

The Russian govt. dedicated tons of $ and resources to domesticating the wild fox through selective breeding. I watched a documentary about it, was pretty interesting:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

A few people who own them say they are even sweeter than dogs when you break them and they like to curl up next to you.
 Quoting: Vukodlak


In the US only gray foxes have retractable claws but both will climb, grays are just better at it. I was surprised too at how close foxes will live in proximity to people. They just need either a densely brushy area or very steep hill to make a den.
Be careful about investigating their den too closely, I made that mistake and they moved on me. Can't say as I blame them but I was too curious.

It may be a young one OP, right now they're out on their own looking to establish their own territories.

I was shocked to find out they climb trees too. I know he doesn't look that big in the pictures but I give him at least 20-24 pounds maybe, he looked kinda large but that could also be his fur.

I don't have any hill on my property, but there are lots of dense bushes but the leaves will be falling soon so IDK where he could be. We keep hearing a new animal sound outside too, it sounded like a swing screech. I just found this sight with fox sounds and it sounds like a young fox crying but I think it's kinda late for babies.

Re: FOX in my urban backyard!
You have absolutely nothing to worry about. Foxes are not nocturnal mammals they are very well equipped to hunt at night because of their hearing but they are by no means nocturnal. Someone saying that because the fox is out during daylight it has rabbis is absolutely obsurd and that person obviously has no idea what they are talking about
