Red Fox

Red foxes are preyed on by coyotes, wolves, and other predators, but their most significant predators are humans, killing them for their fur and nuisance.

Most red foxes that are taken by natural predators are young pups, but adults can be attacked by coyotes (Canis latrans), wolves, bears, owls, and other predators. Red foxes are rarely eaten by such predators.

The most significant predators on red foxes are humans, who hunt foxes for their fur and kill them in large numbers as pests.
