  • There is a family of foxes living at Century Park, on G Street, in Wellington, and Police Chief Tracy Heath wants the public to stop feeding them.
    The family consists of a mother fox and several young foxes.
    He said he has heard about people feeing them and was concerned.
    "The baby foxes have lost some of their fear toward people," Heath said. "By feeding the foxes we could be causing more harm than good, overfeeding to the point where they forget to forage naturally or feeding food that isn't good for them."
    Heath said feeding any kind of wildlife often leads to negative results.
    He added if people keep feeding them the city will feel it has to relocate them.
