In April, an outpouring of public support persuaded authorities to rescue the Freeway Foxes from their dangerous den alongside a 1-mile extension of the Costa Mesa Freeway. Now, two pups from that family of foxes are waiting to be named and have a new home built for them in Orange County. After their capture, the mother fox and her four pups were taken to the Los Angeles Zoo. Last month, two female pups were brought to the Orange County Zoo at Irvine Regional Park.

The red fox was no more than 3 weeks old when mechanics at the Hyperion sewage treatment plant saw it wandering on their property near El Segundo. It was disoriented and so tiny that it could barely open its eyes. For nearly a week after that May day, the fox, a female, lived in a cardboard box in the Hyperion ocean-monitoring laboratory, amid racks of test tubes and a crowd of biologists who cooed at it and fed it every three hours like doting new parents.

An endangered San Joaquin kit fox is living at a Bakersfield zoo after authorities said it survived being shot and poisoned. The animal was rescued earlier this year by an animal control officer who found the animal having convulsions. Staffers at the Bakersfield Veterinary Hospital said the kit fox had been poisoned and shot in the leg, which was amputated. After recovering, the adult male fox was taken in by the California Living Museum. Kit foxes are about the size of a large house cat.

In a showdown between town and country, the British Parliament on Friday demanded the death sentence for "Tallyho." Hunting with hounds should be criminalized, the House of Commons voted, 411-151, after debate fraught with passion and history. The spectacle of red-coated riders and packs of hounds coursing through the winter countryside is likely to survive another year or two, but the vote means that it may not outlast the millennium.

The leaders of Prince Charles' favorite hunt resigned after animal rights campaigners produced a videotape showing the bloody killing of fox cubs. The secretly filmed video showed that a recent meet broke the rules of hunting by digging a fox cub out of its hole so that it could be torn apart by a pack of baying hounds. The rules of the Master of Foxhounds Assn. state that when a fox has gone to ground, it should be humanely killed before being given to the dogs.

It was the feather that proved it. The golden eagle shed the tell-tale bronze plume beside a pile of fur on the headlands of San Miguel Island. For the past five years, scientists have watched helplessly as once robust populations of island foxes have declined on the rugged chain of islands that comprise Channel Islands National Park. Now they have a pretty good idea what is causing their demise.
