Fox feces

Asked February 3, 2017, 10:46 AM EST

What does fox feces look like? Does a fox defecate in a pile? I do have foxes in the woods behind me I m having a terrible problem with mounds of feces on my lawn I am trying to figure out is it a fox OR an uncaring neighbor Thank you

Really the biggest differences would be size (a large dog would make bigger piles than a fox or coyote), smell, and perhaps most noticeable, what it's made up of.
Wild animals often has undigested components based on their diets, for instance, fur, feathers, bones or seeds.
