Fox Fury

photos and article by Jennifer Howard

In mid-March, I began receiving messages about sightings of mangy foxes in the Alcona area of Innisfil. I started working with caring community members and together we ended up setting up a network of 5 live traps. These traps were all in secure places and were being monitored by homeowners, and by cameras.

As the foxes continued to worsen, I got more aggressive. On April 24th, I started sitting at locations where reported sightings had been made by concerned people monitoring the foxes’ routines and by what the cameras showed.
