Several people have reported seeing foxes in the park over the past months. Foxes are an introduced pest and can take a heavy toll on native wildlife such as possums and birds.
Fortunately, the Monday weeding group seems to have located an active den in Furness Park on the creek bank. This has been reported to council for appropriate action.
Whitehorse Council usually uses a specialist contractor to eradicate foxes once active lairs are found.
