Australian Fox Control
Australian Feral Management carries out a range of measures to control foxes. Their dens can be fumigated and fox trapping has proven to be very effective. For a quick reduction in fox numbers shooting still remains the primary method.
Scientists believe that European red foxes were successfully introduced into the Australian bush in 1871, by recreational hunters in Melbourne. By around 1910, the species had spread as far as Western Australia. Foxes are now found across most of mainland Australia.
Australian Feral Management Services uses a range of measures to control foxes, from Den fumigation, Leg Hold and Cage Trapping, Culling and 1080 Baiting services.
