INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Red fox (vulpes vulpes)
Location: red fox is native to North America, whole Europe, whole Asia, north Africa and it was reintroduced to Australia
Size: 100 cm long body + 45 cm long tail, 40 cm high weight: 12 kg
Diet: red foxes are omnivorous and are highly opportunistic, so they eat almost everything from small insects to cranes. Red foxes hunt insects, worms, fish, birds, mice, rabbits, crayfish, baby deers. But they eat also fruit (apples, blackberries...) and plants.
Conservation status: Least Concern (the most common carnivora)
Interesting facts: red fox can hide its food to find it later | usually five cubs are born blind and helpless in the burrow | foxes have many colour variations: usually – ginger-red, but also black or silver, Unfortunately, red fox is kept by fur farms and some ----- torture them just to gain their fur. Red foxes are also hunted by so called ,,sportmen“ | red foxes suffer from rabies | red fox is considered to be vermit | red foxes produce pretty weird sounds XD | foxes in the wild live only some 4 years, but they can reach 12 years in captivity
Enemies: golden eagles, gray wolves, cougars, lynxes, coyotes, badgers, wolverines
Legend: foxes play important role in many myths and legend. Due their inteligence, they have become symbol of slyness and cunning. They are also very popular animals, who have role in many fairy tales. In the Czech republic, author Rudolf Tesnohlidek wrote very famous book about very clever hand-rised vixen called Bystrouska. I loved that book and also it funny happy end!

foxes in Europe DO have rabies, of course - only in some countries they do not carry it :D

Well its pretty much dying out rabies in Europe
and the Uk do not have as I'm from England
a recombinant vaccine was developed and put in bait for foxes to take. The net effect of vaccination has worked very well-over 9 million baits have been dropped, and western Europe is no longer at risk of rabies.
So it saves more foxes and animals dying from the evil disease.
They should do that every where else.

I know :) but this vaccination was done only in some countries :)
Not all countries have "rabies-free" status :)
I know about it, as I rabies fascinates me.

My country is rabies-free, but our neighbour states are not :)

Well I hope rabies days out some day as its caused a lot of pain and sadness both for humans and animals
the black plague was nasty enough and dark page of history
it carried on from the 13th century till 17th century
