Foxes can look very cute but are also very dangerous. Foxes are one of the largest carriers of the rabies virus on the East Coast, and rabies is 100% fatal if left untreated. A fox is also a threat to small pets. It is important to get your problem with foxes remedied before they become a larger problem.
Common Reasons for Fox Trapping and Fox Removal Services:
Foxes can kill small pets
Foxes usually feed on invertebrates (such as worms, snails, and insects) and small rodents, but will occasionally feed on small animals. A small pet dog or cat could easily become the prey to a hungry fox. Many people become aware of a possible fox attack near their home or office when their pet goes missing. Unlike coyotes, a fox will kill its prey and take it back to the fox den to either feed its young or bury the dead animal for a later meal. Most farmers consider foxes a nuisance because foxes feed on chickens, baby goats, and lambs.
Foxes carry disease
Foxes are one of the most frequent carriers of the Rabies virus on the East Coast. Rabies will be 100% fatal if left untreated.
If a fox bites or scratches anyone or a pet, that fox must be safely trapped, killed, and sent to be tested for rabies. If for any reason the fox cannot be trapped, the person or animal bitten or scratched must go through a series of expensive and painful rabies shots. This is why fox trapping and fox removal is absolutely necessary, and should be delegated to the professionals.
