This September 2019 video shows a female roe deer with her fawn in the Veluwe region in the Netherlands. When, as the night falls, a red fox approaches, the roe deer mother drives it away.
Researchers analyzed genetic material of red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) inhabiting Berlin and its surroundings. They identified two genetically distinct, adjacent ‘urban’ and ‘rural’ fox populations and revealed that physical barriers such as rivers or man-made structures reduce the exchange between these populations but also differences in human activity in these landscapes play a major role: here.
Sorry, Kitty, but i hope you will accept my best wishes for a blessed and successful 2020! Michael
Thank you, Michael, and the best for you as well!
