Nice article. Thank you for updating us on the status of the Sacramento Valley red fox and for the opportunity to participate in a survey to help conserve it.

over the last 2 years I have have watched a red fox pair start a family at a golf course I frequent in Stockton, ca I was wondering exactly which kind of red fox because somebody obviously must have put them there, they look exactly like the ones on the endangered list, have pics 209-603-6783

1:45pm 11/19/15 I saw a red Fox at the Santa Barbara Airport grounds. It ran from the AOA area, then under a fence lost track at the creek next to Fairview Ave. Have a pic but not clear at all, old cell phone.

Observed first fox today. Beautiful animal. When it runs, it seems to hop.  
I live in Central Valley Ca. Springville. Foothills to Sierras and Sequoia National Park.  
Fox ran along fence line and disappeared into orange grove.

I spotted a red fox this morning in my yard in Solvang, CA. Good sighting; full sunlight, and I confirmed the species using many online sites. We have many quail families in the area, so the fox may have been attracted to them.

We have had red foxes on our since before we purchased it in 1998. I have seen 4 in the last 5 days, including 2 yesterday (female and grown pup) photos of the adult female. Today I got good photos of one of the two pups I saw. I mean really good photos. If you are interested in looking at them I could email them. I am a retired wildlife biologist from CDF&W. I'm just North of Ukiah, Mendocino County

Today around 4:00 pm I saw a red fox run across our front lawn. She appeared to have a foot injury on her hind right leg, holding that foot up as she ran. She stood up and got a drink from our birdbath. It looks like she had done that before but it was the first time I have seen a red fox since living in this sea for 3 years. She sat under The oak trees briefly after drinking. She was very alert and scanning all directions. She then looked for some water from irrigation tubes and then went into a forested area. We live in an agricultural area in Santa Barbara next to a creek, ocean, and open space.

I have been reporting spring sittings & night calling / territorial screams of the SV Red Foxfor the last several years to UCDavis Ben Sacks, Kay Kerlin & referred student Sophie. Neighbors have photos Day & night.... yet we have had little guidance on how to assist or how to assist the SVRed Fox....  
we would like to assist this species to survive.... they are truly a beautiful creature!

I didn't ask who to call when I see one, I see a couple each day but they to be trained or something, I asked how do we as humans help them from extinction.

I live in Sacramento’s Pocket neighborhood. I’ve saw a red fox about 5 years ago (I have video and will confirm date before I report). Evenings I hear calling that I think is red fox. I will make recordings.

Hi, We live on an acre of private property in Lake County California. Our Community Association has issued to us a "Notice To Abate" a small vegitative section of our property where a family of wild Red Foxes live. We do not wish to disturb the Foxes habitat.  
Are there any animal protection regulations which I can use to thwart the Community Associations demand?
