    This may have been posted before but I didn't find it searching. Here is a link showing foxes trying to go over, under, and through fences. The videos give a good idea of why strong fences and good planning are needed to keep these guys out of the coop.

    Though the type of fox is not our red variety, they appear very similar in size etc.

    Thanks for posting. Makes me wonder how apron fences can have a reputation to be effective? Makes me rethink my plans.

    The effectiveness of an apron can depend a lot on soil as well. Lots of clay or rocks could really limit the viability of an animal trying to dig under.
