An interesting read on the issues #foxes cause and some of the control methods to utilise.
There are 21 different species of fox throughout the world, but only the red fox is found in Australia. It was first released in the Melbourne area around the 1850s. Within just 20 years foxes were declared a pest species in Victoria.
Foxes predate on lambs and weak calves. Also, chickens and other domestic pets such as rabbits and aviary birds. They carry diseases that are transmissible to dogs and humans such as sarcoptic mange, hydatids and leptospirosis. Foxes also predate on native mammals, reptiles, birds and insects. And they spread weed seeds far and wide in their manure.
Baiting is by far the most effective method of control. But there are also some constructive actions you could employ, if you prefer not to bait, or to enhance your existing control program.
