The effects of aviation noise on reproduction in farmed blue foxes: a pilot study



The effects of aviation noise on reproduction in farmed blue foxes: a pilot study



Suomen Elainlaakarilehti 109(6): 337-343



The Finnish Air Force (FAF) cannot fully avoid flying over fur farms during the breeding season. FAF pays yearly for cub losses assumed to be caused by aviation noise. Our aim was to study how aviation noise affects reproduction and behaviour of farmed blue foxes (Alopex lagopus), the most important fur animal in Finland. Forty-nine artificially inseminated/mated blue fox vixens were exposed to aviation noise from F-18 Hornet jet fighters flying near and over the experimental farm.
