Foxes tend to move around human settlements in search of water and to scavenge. Seen here is a fox drinking water from a manmade water hole. They usually end up relying on resources that pet dogs or feral strays also make use of. For these reasons, fights with feral dogs are very common. Desert Foxes are difficult to chase down, but these fights often end badly for them, as dogs hunt in packs and the fox is a solitary mammal that is smaller in size. Their pups make for easy targets, and the dens are easy to find. Foxes are also commonly preyed on by larger mammals like the hyena, wolf and jackal.
