inspection by the vixen

Marking foxes. The fox den under the London-houses is famous. The foxes are very tame and used to people. Are they still behaving natural? They have such a large impact on the goose population, so I have to study these foxes too. In order to recognize them, they need to be marked. Thanks to Eva Fuglei, Bjorn Andes and Ian Gjertz, I was allowed to tag them individually. Today I started catching and I was able to tag 9 foxes within one day. I think I still miss the father and one puppy.
We used traditional fox traps. A stone on the door is enough weight to keep it closed when a fox is inside.
we caught a puppy with big gloves now I am a fox catcher too ready for marking

numberleft earright earsizesexbodymassname We will start a facilty on our webpage to enter sightings of foxes and geese. We are very interested in keeping track of the whereabouts of these foxes, over the autumn and winter. Please keep a check on www.arcticstation.nl and see under [sightings of animals]. For sightings, you only have to know which colour in which ear, because the colourcombinations are unique. We than name them by two colournames, left ear (seen from the fox perspective) first and than the colour of the right ear.

The first nine foxes were caught 28/7/2006 between 13:00 and 20:00. The next day I had two recaptures and decided to wait with baiting the traps until an unmarked fox was around. 30/7/2007 17:30, we caught the last puppy (no. 10).
