Urban Foxes

Foxes are classed as wild animals, not as pests, but are more of a nuisance with noise and the ripping apart of rubbish bags leaving litter strewn all over the area.


An abundance of food and shelter and an absence of predators has enabled the fox to thrive in our cities. If we, as a community, reduce the availability of food and places to shelter, fox numbers will reduce, as will the number of rats, feral pigeons and seagulls.


Fox facts

  • foxes are mainly nocturnal mammals and spend the hours of darkness hunting for, and scavenging, food
  • foxes can live for about 12 to 15 years, but life expectancy in urban areas is much shorter and most foxes survive for about two to three years
  • up to 50 per cent of the UK’s fox population is killed on the roads
  • up to 80 per cent of fox cubs die before reaching sexual maturity and therefore never breed
  • urban foxes live off of a diet of food scavenged from refuse bags left out on the street, badly-cleaned or easily accessed refuse storage areas, carelessly discarded fast-food, berries, plant bulbs, worms, garden insects, birds and other small mammals, including rats and mice
  • foxes generally avoid contact with dogs and cats
  • foxes can carry the same diseases as domestic dogs
