Urban Foxes in Canberra (contd)

I’ve written before about fox sighting in the Canberra suburbs, but this morning’s was a beauty, near Inkster Street a young dog fox legging it across Sulwood Drive and off into the Mount Taylor nature reserve.

The interesting thing is that the fox was coming from an area of suburban housing suggesting that it had been foraging in the suburbs, either bin diving, looking for people with chooks in their back yard, or indeed cat and dog food left out.

It fits very well with my hypothesis that the reserves between the suburbs are providing a refuge for not only kangaroos but also foxes, and unlike foxes out in the country these foxes have become quite urbanised, in the same was you see in the UK and Ireland …
