The Wild Life of the Fox




Our greatest nature writer explores the myths, legends, history and hidden world of one of our most mysterious animals.

"I adore the fox for its magnificence; I hate the fox for killing my chickens. To love and loathe the fox is a British condition."

The fox is our apex predator, our most beautiful and clever killer. We have witnessed its wild touch. And yet we long to stroke the tumbling cubs outside their tunnel homes and watch the vixen stalk the cornfield and slink behind the bins.

There is something about foxes. They captivate us like no other species.

Exploring our long, sometimes complicated relationship with this magnificent creature, The Mysterious Life of the Fox is the existence of Vulpes vulpes in vivid detail.
