Even prehistoric man of the Old Stone Age (Paleolithic age) went hunting regularly. Hunting provided them with a food source and supplied them with valuable animal by-products such as fur, bones and sinews.
Advanced ancient civilisations revered divini-ties related to hunting, for example the Greek goddess Artemis or the Roman goddess Diana. In the Catholic Church, Saint Hubertus is regarded as the patron saint of hunting.
Nowadays hunters take on other responsibilities. The main aim of hunting is to care for diverse species. This includes feeding game during winter, when foraging is much more diffcult. But also population control of wildlife is of utmost importance to avoid damage to forestry and agriculture.
The red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is the largest of the true foxes and the most abundant member of the Carnivora, being distributed across the entire Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa, Central America and Asia. Its range has increased alongside human expansion, having been introduced to Australia, where it is considered harmful to native mammals and bird populations. Because of these factors, it is listed as Least Concern by the IUCN. Due to its presence in Australia, it is included among the list of the "world's 100 worst invasive species".
The red fox originated from smaller-sized ancestors from Eurasia during the Middle Villafranchian period, and colonised North America shortly after the Wisconsin glaciation. Among the true foxes, the red fox represents a more progressive form in the direction of carnivory. Apart from its large size, the red fox is distinguished from other fox species by its ability to adapt quickly to new environments. Despite its name, the species often produces individuals with other colourings, including albinos and melanists.
