Foxes are edible. Sadly, many people hunt these creatures for sport, kill them as pests, while others often hunt and eat them for game. While fox meat is edible, it is also very tough and has a wild taste about it. It has been said that in order to tenderize fox meat, it should be soaked overnight in salt water and a tiny bit of vinegar. The next day it should be cooked on a low heat for four hours or so. Fox meat has almost no fat and tends to be very dry like deer meat.
