Landcare note LCO364. Foxes are declared vermin in Victoria.
Predation of small animals by foxes is listed as a threatening process under the Flora and fauna Guarantee Act (1988) because of the threat it poses to native wildlife populations.
Further, the fox is considered to be the major vector for the spread of rabies should this disease enter Australia.
