Fox Removal & Control Services
Southwest Colorado Local Animal Control
Foxes are naturally skittish critters and will typically run or hide from people.
There are four species of foxes native to Colorado. They are the Red (Vulpes vulpes), Kit (V. macrotis), Swift (V. velox), and Gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus). The red and gray fox are far more common in Southwest Colorado.
Red foxes adapt to most habitats within their range, but usually prefer open county with moderate cover. Gray foxes prefer prefer more dense cover. The ranges of these animals are often limited by coyotes and wolves, which sometimes kill them.
Foxes are mostly solitary creatures except during the winter breeding season through midsummer, when mates are raising their young.
Red foxes may dig their own den or use abandoned burrows. The same dens are often used for several generations. Gray foxes often create dens in wood piles, rocky outcrops, or hollow trees.
As carnivores, a foxes diet consists mainly of rabbits, mice, birds and eggs. They do sometimes eat fruits and insects as well. A fox will usually kill prey that is smaller than a rabbit, but are also known to kill and eat raccoons, fawns, piglets, lambs, and poultry.
