‘Foxycology’ – exploring fox ecology and behaviour

On the 19th February, The League Against Cruel Sports will host ‘Foxycology’; an evening of talks exploring the ecology of rural and urban foxes and offering humane solutions to human/fox conflicts.

No other native British mammal divides opinion as deeply as the red fox. To many, they are beautiful and adaptable animals who provide a connection to the fast disappearing natural world.

Sadly, those who want to persecute foxes for fun or fortune tell a different story. They often demonise foxes and exaggerate their impact on ecosystems and livelihoods.
