The urban fox is not classified as ‘vermin’ and as such we have no responsibility to deal with the problems they can cause.

Non lethal and humane treatment to deal with these animals can be obtained from a number of organisations.

The Fox Project , Southern Wildlife Ambulance Network (external link) can be contacted by emailing  or by calling the Fox Deterrence Helpline on 01892 826222.

This organisation are most helpful in providing advice or referrals for specialist assistance.
