Ownership of a fox, skunk, or raccoon is strictly prohibited in MT per state law.
http:/leg.mt.gov/bills/mca/50/23/50-23102.htm is in full effect and is enforced.
Please do not ship or sell to individuals with the intent of bringing the animal to MT.
Doing so will result in the animal being impounded, quarantined
and possibly destroyed. MT does not allow the private ownership
of these species outside of a licensed zoo or fur farm.
Here is a link to the laws regarding rabies.

This is the letter James Grey wrote to us:
I am with the NYS Dept. of Agriculture and markets an I am referred
to on your web page regarding state laws. I am writing to clarify the law so
their is no confusion. It IS LEGAL to keep fox in NY if you are raising them for FUR.
Under the AG Markets laws would be considered an AG ACTIVTY. Under our Dept.
of Environmental Conservation dangerous animal law the keeping of a fox as a PET
IS NOT ALLOWED with the exception of a fennec fox. You can find this info on the NYDEC webpage. You can also contact 518-402-8985 if you need further guidance.

NO COLOR RED RED FOX"
It's legal own a red fox in Virginia that meets
the following definition: " domesticated race of red fox(vulpes vulpes)
with a coat color that can easily be distinguished from a wild red fox".
Animals that meet this definition are legally defined as "domestic"
and no permit is required.
No other species of fox
are allowed (arctic fox, gray fox, etc).
Only red foxes that don't look like a wild one.
Examples of foxes that would be legal to own
would be a silver fox, cross fox,etc. I hope this helps.
