VIDEO: Are urban foxes taking over?


If you follow our good friend Gus the Fox on Twitter or you've ever taken a taxi ride at about 5am in London, you'll be aware of the existence of urban foxes.

Possessing even more self-assurance and swagger than those kids who scare you at the park, they're incredibly smug about their decision to move to the city.

But aside from the odd sighting of one eating an unfinished kebab or homeless man, what do we really know about them? Channel 4 have decided to launch an investigation in the new show Foxes Live: Wild in The City.

With up to 40,000 foxes allegedly living in our cities, the makers are hoping to uncover the secret lives of our angry little frenemies with a comprehensive nationwide survey of the urban fox population.

You can see the trailer below and catch the show on Mondays at 8pm on Channel 4:
