Wanted for...

The red fox is wanted for the depletion of native species in Australia including: the black-footed rock-wallaby, numbats, and burrowing bettongs.


The red fox has orangish-red fur, with white fur under its neck and on its neck. Has black legs, feet, and black pointed ears. Has a long bushy tail with white at ends. They can range from 6.5 to 18 lbs.

They were last seen on the mainland of Australia, most prevalent where dingos are not seen

Responsible for major declines

The red fox is responsible for the decline of ground-nesting birds, and small to medium sized mammals, especially to the threatened species the malleefowl. The fox also caused significant economic losses to farmers by preying on newborn lambs, poultry, and kid goats.


The fox is most in line with the domestic cat and dog within an environment. They adapt quickly to new environments.
