Foxes are smaller than coyotes and wolves and tend to live by their wits. Solitary creatures, except when seeking mates or rearing pups, foxes are very dangerous to small creatures, such as mice.

The Scent Border keeps out most of these predators, but they are fast learners and a few figure out the trick every season. These wayward predators must be dealt with by the Guard.
