Sunset Zoo: Swift Fox

About the size of a domesticated cat, the swift fox is native to the western grasslands of North America.  In 1995, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service deemed that the swift fox was deserving of an “endangered” status.  However, the status, and related federal protection, wasn’t granted due to a backlog of higher priority species.  States and other agencies in the swift fox’s native territory formed the Swift Fox Conservation Team to prevent further decline.
