Foxes everywhere! It’s a bit because people are feeding them, and they’re getting into the dumpster now too. But I’ve never seen them like this before. I’ve actually never seen them getting into our dumpsters like this before, or so abundant. It’s wild. And there are much less rodents as well.
According the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is commonly found in most regions of Alaska except for some of the islands in Southeast Alaska, the western Aleutians, and occasionally in Prince William Sound. They are opportunistic omnivores, meaning they will eat just about anything. When preferred food such as small mammals, birds, and eggs are abundant, they will create caches of food to store for later. Foxes that have little human exposure are often wary and curious, but exhibit less fear with increased human contact.
