The red fox is essential to the balance of the forests' ecosystems being a natural "ecological regulator": foxes take down the weak, sick and abnormal individuals in a group of preys, thereby participating to the natural selection. Further more, by feeding on small rodents, foxes prevent human beings from catching diseases carried by these preys, such as echinococcosis.
Unfortunately, in many countries there is a high attempt at eradicating foxes falsely considered a nuisance to satisfy private financial interests and leisure activities, such as fox hunting/hunting with hounds and underground hunting, among other similar activities.
