Red Foxes – Vulpes vulpes.  Foxes are found throughout the United States where they feed on live prey such as mice, squirrels, chipmunks and birds as well as other food items such as fruits, berries, insects, lizards and snakes.  They vary in size from 10 to 15 pounds as adults.  The red fox is the most common fox in North America.  They are found in rural and urban areas.  They may form small family groups of less than half a dozen adult individuals.  Most are solitary.  Foxes can be a serious vector of the rabies virus and only qualified individuals should handle or trap foxes when necessary.
