Red foxes are mostly nocturnal. They are found throughout much of North America, Europe, Asia and North Africa, and were introduced into Australia in the nineteenth century. Red foxes are omnivorous and some occasionally target domestic birds.
More red foxes are raised on farms for their fur than any other wild fur-bearing mammal. They are known vectors for rabies and can transmit the disease to humans and other animals.
