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