Fox pet ownership

Question:

is it legal to own a fox as a pet in the state of Idaho?

Answer:

No; there are disease concerns with raccoons (rabies) so individuals cannot own a raccoon, fox, or skunk as a pet.

 

Idaho Code Section 25-236 prohibits individuals from possessing raccoon/fox/skunk, and the Idaho State Department of Agriculture enforces this law.  Public parks, zoos, museums and educational institutions can keep these animals if they get a permit from the Idaho State Department of Agriculture.
