Is it possible that because of the hunting ban, the effects of growth hormones used in animal husbandry are now showing up in Foxes that would have normally have succumbed to the hounds?


I do know that the animal husbandry anti inflammatory Diclofenac is causing a serious problem in Asian vultures, and has reduced their numbers from 10's of millions in the 1980's  to about 11,000 today.
