The old experienced fox is very difficult to catch. Foxes are famous for the cunning with which they avoid traps, and where they are hunted with dogs – their ability to confuse hounds.
To do this, the animal can pass through a fence or a stream, often returns on its own backward track, and then bounces far to the side and continues the path in the previous direction. There are cases when, to confuse dogs, a fox leaped onto the back of a sheep.
Foxes are susceptible to many diseases: they can get rabies from dogs; they often have internal parasites, such as round and tapeworms (worms); the most common disease of foxes is scabies, often ending with the death of animals.
