What do Foxes and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Have in Common?
What Foxes Can Tell us about Electromagnetic Fields
Imagine acres of frozen white, and suddenly a fox diving headlong into a blanket of snow. Hidden under the 3 feet of snow, a field mouse snuggles warm and cozy, safe and protection. Unless the fox is diving using the magnetic compass that all animals use for navigation. It turns out that the red fox is most successful in hunting when using the earth’s magnetic field.
Researchers recorded 592 jumps, and found that when the fox used the North-South axis, jumping from the north, they were successful in 3 our of 4 jumps! When they pointed in any other direction, they came up with no mouse in their mouth more than 80% of the time.
