  10. 10.   The red fox is a solitary animal.  They typically hunt alone, except during mating season.  Males are not typically territorial, except (again) during mating, or breeding, season.  Foxes and coyotes are natural rivals, a fox will go as far as to bark if a coyote approaches and the coyote will often give chase (but typically cannot catch the foxes due to the fact that the fox can run 48 kilometers per hour). (Ecology/2009) Behavior
