Management of the Red Fox in Captivity

 

An invaluable reference tool for animal professionals
by Jessica Addams and Andrew Miller

If you work for a growing animal facility which wishes to start a display of red foxes, this is the reference for you. Drawing from Wolf Park’s nearly four decades of experience working with socialized canids of many species, this book covers the basics of working with the fascinating, social and intelligent red fox in captivity. Many of its suggestions can be applied to the husbandry of other animals as well.

Topics include:

  • Fox behavior
  • Foxes in the wild
  • Permits and legal considerations
  • Designing and building an enclosure
  • Selecting and obtaining animals for display
  • General enclosure maintenance
  • Emergency animal care
  • Hand-raising of kits
  • Socialization
  • Training and positive reinforcement
  • Animal interaction with the public

The book is designed for the animal professional as well as for those who simply love foxes, or would like to get a glimpse into what it is like to run an animal facility. Lavishly illustrated with diagrams and with black and white photographs by Wolf Park photographer Monty Sloan, it is sure to become an integral part of any animal professional reference library.
