Bristol's Foxes - 40 years of change

By - Phil Baker

The Red Fox Vulpes vulpes has the widest geographical distribution of any terrestrial carnivore and is found throughout the northern hemisphere, as well as in Australia, where it was introduced for hunting. It occupies a diverse array of habitats ranging from arctic tundra to deserts.

However, urban Foxes are still most widespread in Britain.
