140 Words1 Page
In the article, “Fighting for Foxes” the authors, Conover and Curry, explain how the Channel Island Foxes were close to extinction and how the population arose and came back. The process of how the Channel Island Foxes almost became extinct is this. The Bald Eagles started to decline because DEE, a chemical got into the food web, causing eggs to break easily or not hatch at all. The Golden Eagles then started taking over the area. The reason for this is because Bald Eagles started declining and left no competition for Goldens. Also ranchers brought in pigs which gave Goldens more prey. After the Goldens took over the area, the foxes started to decline because the Golden Eagles preyed upon the foxes. The foxes then died of diseases from dogs.
