Dalyellup Foxes – Update

Thank you to all the Dalyellup community members who have sent us details of 20 fox sightings. Most of the activity is happening along Hutt Drive, in the bushland coastal reserves. A pair of foxes was sighted at 5.48am on June 13th, heading south into the bushland from the beach car park at the end of Norton Prom.

We think the foxes are living in the dune areas and come out at night to do the rounds along the urban streets of Dalyellup looking for pet food, scraps and anything else they can eat.

They are disturbing the local dog population that can smell them as they do their early morning rounds.

It is fox breeding season from now until spring and it is essential we help protect our wonderful native wildlife from these very effective hunters.

The Shire of Capel will be engaging a fox trapper to try and trap these foxes in July . We will be asking residents to keep their pets away from the areas where trapping is being undertaken to make sure the foxes are not disturbed from their homes. Signs will be put in place and notices posted on Facebook an the Shire’s website.

Please keep reporting where and when you see a fox.
