The Fox is Ranked by Phisiologists with the Canine Species but Unlike the Dog under Whose Character He Is thus Classed, He Is Not Described as the Friend, But the Enemy of Man—Hence We are Bound to Enquire into His History, to Understand His Habits, His Manners, and His Instincts—to Learn to Circumvent His Manoeuvres, to Detect His Wiles, and in Short, to Destroy His Life, in Order to Diminish and Keep Under a Troublesome Enemy (1830)
