The red fox – Vulpes vulpes

Foxes are a serious treat to biodiversity conservation in Australia. Predation by foxes is appropriately listed as a key threatening process under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act. In the Northern Territory, foxes are largely confined to the more arid areas but appear to be expanding their range in a northerly direction. Foxes can be effectively controlled with 1080 poison administered in meat baits.
