YOURS (UK) - - Our Shared Planet -

The num­ber of red foxes liv­ing in towns and cities has quadru­pled in the past 20 years. That’s the find­ings from re­search led by Dawn Scott, a mam­malian bi­ol­o­gist, and Phil Baker a be­havioural zo­ol­o­gist. Us­ing in­for­ma­tion from tagged foxes and res­i­dent sight­ings from eight cities, it was es­ti­mated there are nearly 150,000 liv­ing in English towns and cities, com­pared to only 33,000 in the Nineties.
