It would be pretty cool if South Korea is able to get foxes sustainably returned to the wild, but as this below article shows it will be extremely difficult:
The Korea National Park Service began its ambitious plan to bring back the endangered Korean red fox by releasing a pair into the wild, where it hoped they would thrive.
But six days later, the female fox was found dead in the mountains.
There are fewer than 30 red foxes in Korea, most living in zoos.
The Korea National Park Service, under the Ministry of Environment, released a male fox and female fox on Oct. 31 into Mount Sobaek National Park, located in both North Chungcheong and North Gyeongsang, in a “Born Free”-style project to restore the population of native foxes in the wild.
But on Tuesday, the young female fox that was released was found dead near a farmer’s house in Yeongju, North Gyeongsang, five kilometers (3.1 miles) away from the location of release, raising controversy regarding the timing and method of releasing the foxes into the wild. [Joong Ang Ilbo]
