What's with this "North American Red Fox" rubbish? Holarctic (or even wider) surely? Unless its been split, in which case I get a tick and no way is it "North American".

"...about 0.1% of the UK fox population"

430k (rough fox population) *0.1% = 430 = slow news day.

Nice animal though. One wonders what they would say had it been a real wolf. It's like my wife who, when tasked with mouse trap purchases, came back with rat traps.

To the layperson, first impressions can be confusing. A girlfriend, who was staying at the Joshua Tree Inn c.40 years ago was politely told to stop feeding the " shy, thin Alsation " hanging about the complex. Yep, a Coyote.
