We are trying to catch the foxes to mark them. They will get a colour tag in each ear. Photographers are not happy with those tags, but we need the foxes to be individually recognisable to build our story. From last year, we know that it is the same mother at the den and that her daughter Randi is still visiting the den. This resulted in fierce fights between mother and daughter.

Daan (no. 3) is reported dead, 2 others probably too and two more because we found two left-over heads of foxes close to the den. They were eaten by the surviving foxes.
