One of the mammals seen on the district is the red fox. It is the most common predator in the state and prefers a mix of habitats ranging from mature forests to open fields. They are opportunists; eating a variety of food including mice, rabbits, ground squirrels, birds, snakes, berries and nuts. Unlike wolves, the fox is a solitary animal. Dens are typically found in the woods and are used primarily as nurseries for their young called kits. Partner land owners take delight in the sight of young playful siblings.
