Damascus is a quaint town located in Montgomery County of Maryland. The unincorporated area is the perfect for home for the two species of fox that can be found in Maryland. The Red Fox and Gray Fox are the two species of fox that are found in the Mid-Atlantic and North American regions. While foxes don’t pose a direct threat to humans, they can still be dangerous and shouldn’t be wanted on your Damascus property. The Gray Fox is the shyer of the two species in Maryland. The Gray Fox is rarely seen by humans and is known for stealing a chicken or two from a yard or farm close to their home. The Red Fox is the more well known of the two species because it is seen more often. The Red Fox is blamed for most of the damage caused by foxes in the Damascus area. The Red Fox typically causes damage to a home’s lawn or garden and can be found living under a home’s deck or crawl space. The Red Fox is also known to feed on kittens and smaller cats that live outdoors. The feces of both fox can be hazardous because it could harbor roundworm and tapeworm.
