The fox has a primary predator is man, who hunts and traps it, as well as drives it off or strips it of habitat. In the wild, bobcats, lynxes, panthers, and wolves will take down a fox if they are able, and the bear or wolverine will kill a fox if it can, though the fox is generally too quick and wily. The young of the fox are vulnerable to larger Birds of Prey where the adults are not such easy marks and are generally avoided.

In general, any larger predator will tackle any fox that is found within its range. That's the general rule of thumb - the larger predator will prey on a smaller predator if the opportunity presents itself. Bears, larger canines, or any large cat can be trouble for a fox, as can any large bird of prey.

Owls are one of the predators that eat these foxes.
