DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Foxes have become a more common sight on Park Point lately and the DNR is asking residents not to feed them.  More complaints have been received about foxes approaching people and homes in the area.  DNR Assistant WIldlife Manager, Martha Minchak, says wild foxes are  not generally a threat to people but can be carriers of diseases that can be spread to pets.  To keep foxes away from your property, the DNR recommends removing food sources such as pet food from decks or outdoor areas, storing garbage in a shed or garage until pickup day and make noises or yell at the animals to discourage them from returning.  As a general rule, the DNR does not provide trapping services to relocate nuisance animals.
