Are you concerned about seeing foxes in La Grange Park? The Village is surrounded by Forest Preserve on three of its borders so its not uncommon for residents to find foxes living in their yard. Foxes are not a threat to pets or people and they do not attack humans
If you’re worried about close encounters, do not leave pets outside unattended, do not leave pet food outside, and secure garbage cans.In order to deter a fox from an area, use loud noises, unpleasant smells, and frightening visuals (such as large balloons) to make the area appear unsafe and uninviting. NEVER feed the foxes or try to approach or pet them–this is critically important for their survival.
