A study was initiated in 2005 to examine the ecology of gray fox in Texas, to assist the oral rabies vaccination program. The study’s objectives are to examine space use and long-distance movements of radio-collared foxes, and to provide landscape-level ecological assessment of fox dispersal and the factors that influence it. Concurrently, GIS habitat layers being built will assist in understanding fox movement and gene flow.
