The Red Fox - these wonderful creatures with their stunning red coats populate most of our towns and countryside. With an estimated population of 250,000, their numbers are declining and so we need to take care of our furry friends.
Foxes are extremely clever and adaptable animals and have taken well to towns. The urban fox has evolved so well he seems really at home in our towns now. As a wildlife rescue, Harper Asprey gets both town and country foxes and they can vary in many aspects.
Foxes don’t always make the best of neighbours but before you write them off as the neighbours from hell take a few minutes to understand them and maybe find some ways of discouraging them from visiting your space. What use are they?
For years now we have slowly redeveloped, destroyed and reduced our countryside which has had a dramatic impact on our wildlife and its environment. This has resulted in many creatures seeking alternative living arrangements.
Our office hours are 8 am - 4 pm 7 days a week. After 4pm calls are monitored. Please call Tel: 01344 623106 or call or text 07476 011313 for advice and to admit an animal.
