Video of the week: what does the fox really say?

Posted by Sabrina Doyle in Wildlife on Friday, February 12, 2016

Foxes look a lot cuter than they sound.

In movies, foxes are often portrayed as slick characters, capable of conning others with their smooth voices and glossy fur coats. Or else they're seen as adorable balls of fluff, perfect hypothetical pet material. Neither of these images can prepare you for the distinctive fox "scream."

The scream isn't the only sound a fox makes, of course. While their vocalizations aren't quite as varied as the average dog, they can bark, yip, and whimper.

Video of the week: Police eagle takes down drone mid-air

Posted by Sabrina Doyle in Wildlife on Friday, February 5, 2016

In a world first, police are training birds of prey to attack illegal drones. The Netherlands' National Police is working with Guard From Above, a company that trains raptors to intercept enemy drones.

Video of the Week: Playful coyote practices hunting

Posted by Alexandra Pope in Wildlife on Friday, January 15, 2016

A video of an Ontario coyote appearing to play fetch by itself with a dog's ball is going viral for its cute factor, but it also offers an interesting insight into the ways coyotes hone their hunting skills.

The video, uploaded last week by user Evnissyen, shows the coyote repeatedly carrying a ball up a small hill, then chasing it as it rolls down. This pet-like behaviour may seem strange for a wild animal, but Frank Ritcey of WildSafeBC told the National Post there are animals that play "just ...
