After the First World War, foxes migrated into urban areas of the UK and this was mainly due to a change in people’s lifestyles. Rural foxes quickly urbanised and benefited from food sources and shelter in the relatively large gardens, from compost heaps, bird-tables and garden buildings.

Foxes can cause problems for people. Their habit of marking territories is met with distaste by some human neighbors.

These animals are now a regular occurrence in most cities and towns in the UK and for people who keep small pets such as rabbits or poultry they can be a real concern.

As humans expand their living areas into the countryside, so foxes expand their territory into cities and towns. They know that humans are a good source of food, and because they are natural scavengers, have taken the opportunity to live closer to us.

For this reason, it is not advisable to put out food for them to eat, though some people still do. In our towns and cities, discarded fish suppers and inadequate rubbish disposal provide them with more than enough to eat. This is not a creature in danger of starvation.

Proofing, such as sealing gaps into the garden or installing a barrier on top of your fencing should always be your first option. Although fox proofing can be undertaken this can also be expensive and if it is not done properly then it may not be successful.
