Dead Fox.....

Over the years I have had both reds and greys killed after being caught. Do you guys think there is anything besides coyotes and domestics that will kill a fox?

Re: Dead Fox.....

Otter? Fisher?

I know an otter is a lot stronger than a fox, but would the otter attack a trapped fox if given the chance?

I would have to think bear myself.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Re: Dead Fox.....

Interesting. Several years ago while woodchuck hunting on the western edge of Boyertown I stumbled on the head of a red fox on the edge of a wood lot. No other trace of the fox was present and there was still fresh blood around the neck area, the eyes were a bit glassy and there was slobber all over the head that looked relatively fresh. I thought coyotes but never considered bobcats. When I showed the remians to the farmer he was pretty concerned and was thinking coyotet too. No sign of a struggle was found.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Dead Fox.....

I have had bear kill both coon and fox. Makes for an interesting story with the footprints in the trap circle.

If I'm not hunting or fishing with the kids....I'm somewhere on a Judo mat.

Re: Dead Fox.....

Coyote, dogs, fisher, bobcats, bears, raptors, owls......
I saw a nasty video of a fisher man-handle a gray fox.

Re: Dead Fox.....

I had one yesterday and just thought a coyote had done him in. I didn't even take the time to look around for sign, just threw in another set and moved on. When I peeled him all sign pointed toward bobcat but I've never seen one killed by a cat before.

Re: Dead Fox.....

Wouldnt a bear take the whole animal rather than just kill
it?
