Foxes are a declared agricultural pest as well as a threat to a range of native animals. Hunting by foxes is contributing to declining populations of native birds, reptiles and small mammals.
Residents are encouraged to participate in national community reporting of foxes and other feral species through the FeralScan website and smartphone apps.
Fox control should be undertaken on private properties in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act 2002. Find out about approved fox control measures on the WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) website.
