The Gray Fox can be found as far north as Canada and south as Venezuela but they are hardly ever spotted by the average citizen. Allusive and shy, these nocturnal canines like to swim but also have the ability to climb a tree like a cat. Their primary diet is rodents and birds but they will also nibble on berries and fruits. Like other animals, foxes may decide to use a crawlspace under your house or shed as a den to raise their young. Your property will be mouse free by the time the babies are full grown and have moved out!
