Although foxes are not aggressive animals by nature, they have been known to attack if they feel threatened or cornered. Foxes are naturally very timid creatures, and can become very tamed, however just like any wild animal, they cannot fully be trusted as they are far from being domesticated. Keeping a fox as a pet can be difficult for a number of reasons. Besides being unpredictable, they also have a very musky fox odor, that some have said is even worse than that of a ferret’s. These canines also have very sharp teeth that can seriously harm someone if they resort to their wild instincts. Most states will destroy a pet fox if it bites someone as there is no vaccination protocol, and it can be difficult to get a veterinarian to see a fox.
