They seem to be food opportunistic. Meaning they will come up and feed around a house if the food is there. I remember we had one at the FD that would eat our scraps. Every shift we’d place a plate at end of ramp and two wound come in and clean the plate up. I wonder if they would make a good pet if you found a pup? I’m betting they would if you got them young. I remember back as a kid my neighbor had 4 young coyote pups and you literally had to wear welding gloves to handle them. They were absolutely mean.I had a neighbor down the road that used to run a bait shop. He would throw the dead minnows out and a fox or foxes would come to eat them. Each spring, a fox would always have a litter of pups nearby. She would bring the pups with her when they got older. I dont know how long they live, but there was a fox and pups there each spring for five or six years. Usually start out with four pups. By the time they were 3/4 grown, there wouldnt be any left. I think only one year did she ever raise a pup past 3/4 grown - and that year, three of the original four made it.
I used to have a fox that made a regular appearance in my tomato patch. But I also had a 20 lb tomcat and the fox and the tomcat tied up on several occasions - and the tomcat always got the upper hand from what I saw. I caught a fox in a dog proof trap a few years ago - and I havent got a picture of one since.
