WOLVES & FOXES - Canidae

As with the red fox, the species has been subjected to rabies epidemics where 20 percent of a local population has died. It is also subjected to predation by other carnivores such as wolves, and has been widely hunted by man for its fur. Still the species survives in large numbers. It has adapted well to its harsh environment and in good years produces large litters.
