Over the win­ter, red foxes tend to do bet­ter on their own in On­tario’s sprawl­ing Al­go­nquin Park

RED FOX

This red fox (Vulpes vulpe) was pho­tographed in On­tario’s Al­go­nquin Park by Christo­pher Mac­don­ald. Gen­er­ally monog­a­mous, pairs of adult foxes sep­a­rate dur­ing the win­ter, par­tic­u­larly when hunt­ing is poor. They come to­gether again in early spring for breed­ing and den­ning. While ex­ten­sively trapped and hunted in the past, red fox pop­u­la­tions have re­bounded in re­cent decades and are found in ev­ery prov­ince and ter­ri­tory.
