How large is a foxes home range?
First of all, foxes need to find the bait. For that the happen, the bait needs to be in the fox’s home range at a place where it is likely to come across it. The average home range of a fox is around 12 km2, but can vary widely and can overlap a lot, especially in sub-adults. Each night, foxes travel 9.4 km on average within their home range (Carter et al. 2012).
