When Holland banned shooting foxes in 2002, these canines seized their chance. The foxes used to be curbed by hunters, but now appear in more and more places they were never seen before.
This led to consternation among farmers and hunters, but also among many conservationists. They were enthusiastic about the success of the fox but also saw how this carnivore threatened other protected species such as waders.
In the spring of 2006, the Dutch government gave way to pressure from the hunting lobby: now it's open season for foxes again.

This film examines the battle between man and fox. Can this animal - a native of the low countries - decide whether it can maintain itself here or will we shape its fate from the drawing board? Nature seems stronger than people can suspect. And conservationists are becoming increasingly divided...

Première Bloody Fox at the Dutch Film Festival, September 26, 2009. Awarded best Dutch long documentary film 2009.
