The gray fox, a native of mainland Patagonia, was brought to Tierra del Fuego in the 1950s in hopes of putting the brakes on a scourge of rabbits introduced on the Chilean side of the island in the 1930s. Today the foxes roam in force the steppe of the island's north, and are rapidly pushing Tierra del Fuego's larger native red foxes out of prime habitat in southern forests.
