An Explorer's Guide to Lake Bennett, BC & Yukon
In the 1920s, fox farming was an extremely profitable business, and there were several in the Carcross area. Down Lake Bennett about 3 miles from Carcross, the ruins of a large fox farm lies hidden off in the forest. The fox pens/cages have largely rotted away and been covered by forest litter, but there's enough left to give a glimpse at what the operation would have been like. Being right on the rail line, shipping pelts out would have been very simple.
