Want Fries With That?
San Joaquin kit foxes living in urban areas are taking on a distinctly human diet, according to a new study. Scientists working in Bakersfield, California, chemically analyzed fox fur and found that, compared with foxes in more rural habitats, city animals seem to have a diet richer in corn products, probably from corn syrup. That is, they’re eating a lot of junk food.
