All species of foxes are banned. A permit is needed but they do not issue them except to licensed rehabs.
They actually took my fox [...] They do not even allow ownership of grey foxes.
The websites say only red foxes are restricted but that's not true. They do not allow ownership of any type of fox here now.
I've tried to apply for the permits and they said they do not issue them because of a disease that is found in foxes right now.
