We are seeking information from the Illinois public to help in our research efforts. Specifically, we are seeking any information you may have on gray fox in Illinois. We have established a website where you can find out more about our project and a form for visitors to send in information on sightings of gray foxes, either alive or dead.

Live gray foxes may be directly observed in your yard, crossing a road, from a deer stand, from a game camera, or from animals captured during the legal fur harvest season. Dead gray foxes may be seen as roadkill.

Having GPS locations of these events is extremely important and we thank you in advance for your efforts in helping us understand gray fox status.
