** ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' has Nick Wilde, who's a fox conman. As it turns out, this plays into his backstory: [[spoiler:when he was a child, he wanted to be a boy scout but was bullied out of it by the other scouts for being a member of the predator species]]. At that point, he decided that if others treat him as sneaky and untrustworthy [[FantasticRacism just for being a fox]] [[ThenLetMeBeEvil then he might as well be just that]]. His partner in crime is also a fox, specifically a fennec who exploits his small size and being a RidiculouslyCuteCritter in hustles by pretending to be a child.

*** Foxes are tolerated in towns and cities as they keep varmint in control. They are natural predators for rabbits, hares and rats and often clean off carrions and roadkills.
