Foxes

December 28, 2017

Since the Canal Corporation began their Vegetation Management Plan along the banks of the canal, some neighborhoods are being frequented by foxes, who have been impacted by work in their habitat.

Please report any problems associated with the fox to Mayor Blackman or Deputy Clerk Erica Linden at 637-5300.

TAKE ACTION TO DISCOURAGE NEIGHBORHOOD FOXES
Residents should feed pets indoors only and supervise pets when outside. Flashing lights, outdoor radios, and ammonia-soaked rags will act as deterrents to both fox and prey. All garbage and compost containers should be covered and secure. Be advised that feeding wildlife, such as birds and squirrels, will encourage the fox to remain in the area.

It is expected that these foxes will eventually move on to new territory.  All fox sightings indicate that the foxes are healthy (no evidence of mange or rabid behavior).  Foxes are not a danger to humans, unless rabid.  The United States Human Society provides good information and tips, here.

The New York DEC provides this information regarding the red fox, most notably:

  • Red fox breed in New York from December to April, with a peak between January and February. This species maintains lifelong breeding companions.
  • Red fox are highly mobile and can cover long distances on a daily basis. Travel of greater than 6 miles is not unheard of. Range expansion occurs during the winter months.
  • Primarily nocturnal, red fox may occasionally be seen during the day. The activity of females during daylight hours increases with the feeding demands of growing pups; otherwise daytime is spent resting in regular spots, oftentimes above ground.
  • A DEC permit is required to take a nusiance fox, and it is not permitted to live trap and remove from your property. See this DEC page for more information.


Updates will provided here on our website and our Facebook Page when relevent information is available.
