Fennecaphobia is the fear of foxes, especially those of the fennec kind. This phobia is caused because of the thought of foxes being associated with danger. However, it is also possibly caused by a traumatic attack involving a fox, or any traumatic event were foxes were somewhat involved. It is also caused by the assumption that foxes are as violent predators as animals like wolves or coyotes. This phobia is worrying to people who live near foxes, like in North Africa and Canada.
