It pays to provide shelter for silver foxes

Silver fox (48-50 per group) were housed in (1) standard pens (controls), (2) pens with extra insulation (from Dec.), or (3) pens with sheltered shelves (from Dec. to mating in spring). In the 3 groups resp., the percentage of infertile averaged 11.1, 7.1 and 4.3, the percentage of stillborn cubs 20.7, 15.7 and 12.3, the number of liveborn cubs per mated 3.33, 3.35 and 3.89, and the number of cubs weaned 2.84, 3.62 and 3.02.
