Fox Trapping Using Cage Traps

The red fox is a skilled hunter of wildlife and domestic poultry and has adapted well to living amongst humans in urban and peri-urban areas. Cage trapping is one way to safely control foxes areas where it is not safe to bait or shoot.

In 2010 the City of Busselton, Shire of Capel and Shire of Dardanup received State NRM funding to investigate the best way to work with their communities to cage trap foxes.

This protocol outlines the findings of this project.

Three cage traps are available for loan free of charge from the City of Busselton.
