Foxes (Red & Grey)
The red fox and the grey fox are the two most common species found in southeastern Wisconsin. Both are nocturnal canines that primarily prey on mice, rabbits, squirrels, waterfowl, and poultry. They are similar in stature and length – roughly 3-4 feet in length. Foxes are well-known to be swift and sly creatures. Similar to the coyote, foxes are adapting more and more to urban areas in recent years.
