CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


Foxes love to pounce; it’s one way they hunt. In this case, the prey is a small orange tennis type ball!!

Can you keep a fox as a pet?
Pay yearly fee of $25.50 for the “Fur-bearing Mammal Breeder Permit”. The permit does not allow a person to capture or take a live fox from the wild. You have to purchase the fox from another licensed breeder and you must keep and maintain records of the purchase, sale, and propagation of your foxes [SOURCE: City-Data.com States That Allow Foxes as Pets (breeder, legal, rescues, tortoise)].

From Illinois General Assembly …
ANIMALS
(510 ILCS 60/) Domesticated Wild Animals Act.

(510 ILCS 60/2) (from Ch. 8, par. 24a)
Sec. 2. When fox, rabbit, mink, chinchilla, marten, fisher, muskrat, karakul and other fur bearing animals are raised in captivity for breeding or other useful purposes (a) such animals shall be deemed domestic animals; (b) such animals and the products thereof shall be deemed agricultural products; and (c) the breeding, raising, producing or marketing of such animals or their products by the producer thereof shall be deemed an agricultural pursuit.
(Source: Laws 1949, p. 27.)

Arlington Heights Village Code …
http://www.vah.com/assets/1/village_code/CHAPTER_16_05-10_Revision.pdf
Section 16-103 Prohibited Animals. It shall be unlawful for any person to keep any animal other than those customarily used as pets unless such animal shall be certified in writing as safe by a licensed veterinarian and such animal shall be given a rabies shot if there is a possibility of rabies. In no event shall any person or family keep or maintain more than two such animals.

The Cardinal doesn’t practice law, but it looks like you can own a fox if it is bred in captivity, but you can’t keep a wild fox that has been captured. And you have to get approval from a licensed veterinarian and show the approval in writing to Arlington Heights officials.

By the way it is illegal to capture a Northern Cardinal and keep it in a cage.
