Fox Hunting[edit]

Remove the part about 'Foxes prey on native species and lambs'. That has nothing to do with the sport of fox hunting and comes off as moral posturing to attempt to promote a sport not even known for preventing this. The page is locked so I cannot remove it. Add an entirely different section if you want to have that there. It is unrelated to the sport, and glaringly unprofessional and bias. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.162.219.225 (talk) 03:59, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Urban foxes[edit]

The article should say something about urban foxes - an interesting phenomenon. Ben Finn (talk) 09:22, 17 August 2012 (U

I wholeheartedly agree, as I live in a city and have seen foxes roaming about the streets, backyards, playgrounds and parking lots. Thus far there's been little mention of this in the news, and though people in my neighborhood are aware of them, their natural elusiveness makes them difficult to identify, as from a distance it's easy to mistake a fox for a dog.

There was a section and now it's gone because of a blatant "I Don't Like edit" (see WP:IDL) by self appointed judge and jury on the matter: User:A loose noose (an obvious sockpuppet because they only editing like a pro in March 2018)86.129.0.58 (talk) 15:06, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Fox's Evil[edit]

So, any idea why early modern England apparently called baldness Foxes evill? Seems like an interesting bit of cultural lore to source and include. — LlywelynII 01:19, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Quality Assessment[edit]

The article is validated at B-Class for both WikiProject Dogs and WikiProject Mammals. Some uncited material has been tagged, some unnecessary material removed, some material relocated, and single-sentence paragraphs merged with larger paragraphs. The are some references to books that do not include the page number and there would be value in following these up. There is material requiring citation - at B-Class this needs to be provided or the material removed.
