Hire A Fox To Guard Your Orchard, And It Will Certainly Do It Loyally

A fox is a carnivorous mammal found in all parts of the world except Antarctica. There are about 25 species of foxes in the world. The red fox is probably the most common species of the fox. Foxes are also found in some rural areas of the Northern Hemisphere. They can cause some amount of panic in  cities as they dig up garbage for food. 

They hail from the dog family, but are relatively smaller than its counterparts like jackals and wolves. Mice are its favorite food, though other small mammals and birds are also in its diet. Foxes are also known to relish eating all species of insects. They are known to eat at least 1 kg of food in a day. Foxes store excess food by hiding it in leaves. Some snow or soil always serves to hiding the food. Foxes often find themselves in a position to guard fruit farms from pests.

 

Foxes have a lifespan of about 6-7 years while in the wild, although many are known to have lived for more than 13 years while in captivity. Twelve different species of foxes are known to exist in the world.

Fox hunting on a wide scale in the forests of Europe have pushed foxes to the verge of extinction. The sport involves men chasing foxes on horseback accompanied by a pack of trained dogs. They are trained to follow the scents of the foxes. Fox hunting in all its paraphernalia is banned. But there is no restriction on humans chasing foxes on horseback.
