My SIL has a trampoline for the kids and she has seen foxes jump up onto it....they must like the 'bounce'. bounce

I love 'em as well when they rip down the wire netting of my Chicken run and my Grandaughter finds the bloody remains strewn over the lawn, including the special one that she called Chick chick, who would sit on her lap when she called it !

I love ALL animals Syl, I even think Foxes look beautiful [except when they have Mange] It's a Foxes nature,among with many other animals to kill for food, but when they kill MY animals, my love is diminished somewhat.

I can understand why you feel like that if foxes kill your chickens, but it's their nature.
If I kept chickens I would do my best to secure them so foxes couldn't get in their coop or wherever you keep them.

We used to have one that wandered through the garden at the exact time every night, it disappeared a couple of years ago. But when we had a snowfall soon after we saw lots of paw prints in the snow, not a cats and no dogs roam, so I reckon it had cubs and is still around somewhere.

I just don't get people who want to blow away an animal's life for the fun of it, or because they cause inconvenience.

You must remember, Charlie is exceedingly crafty, cunning, resourceful and an outright vicious killer who wantonly kills, not for food though, he will find a way in if you are not careful.
One night he got into a coop and killed 42, never even took one away to eat.
Some chickens fly up into the roof, into walls and injure, kill themselves, Charlie causes this.
We lost geese to him and even guinea fowl who can fly up into trees to roost at nigh when left out.

Large estate owners welcome the hunt onto their land but in reality the hunt kills few.

Beaters walking up to standing guns kill most.

When you kill one who invades your garden after your birds another one replaces it sooner or later.

If you shoot as a guest on a estate owners land and he asks you to shoot foxes it is not the done thing to refuse if you like your shooting as you will soon be ostracised in the whole area..

I do hope I have educated the uninformed. lol! lol! lol!

I will be pleased to answer pertinent serious questions.


BTW, I am off out soon to get these little bugguz, will be tasty in a casserole.

Here comes the sh** storm, better get my tin hat


This is exactly why the Uk agricuture sector is so poor
You guys are so Arcahic in you thinking.
Foxes are a minor pest at most solved by the pressence of a Lama or Alpcha
Any Farm still using old english hunting methods to deal with foxes is obsolete and deserves to be out of Business

the British fear of foxes is laughably pathetic
they belong on the island more than you do

there are foxes around my farm and they dont belong there but they are less problem then feral cats.
A cat is much worse much more vicious and much more likely to kill for fun. 
And ferals are the same size
dead cat and fox:


although the danger is tiger snakes and brown snakes

Yep, they're foxes, but looking at vermin like Major up a tree they might decide to be wolves for a day.

You see, that showed me I just won.   When you have to resort to overtly sexual posts (which, BTW are a banning offense) you have showed yourself up for being exactly what you are, a misogynist, bloodthirsty, RW extremist without of scrap of class or an iota of intelligence, reduced to the bottom feeder you are in a couple of posts (not that you had far to fall to the bottom)  because you can't manage anything else.   On top of that, you are one weird 'man' (using the word loosely of course).

I have heard something similar about goose

involving stuffing with a brick roasting well and then discarding the goose and serving the brick , since it will be less chewey......

well in truth I suppose i'd eat a lot of stuff that I dont/wont eat now if push came to shove

yup, even road kill pizza....

never tried mule.....does that taste like they smell??

oh and if you have a "muddy" fish.... carp tench pike and a couple of the sea fish too....

soak it over night in diluted white vinegar then cook it....Improves it no end.....

and ...IF you have a bit of a rank old buck rabbit.....soak it over night in salt water ...1 tablespoon/pint.....then rinse and cook....takes the overstrong flavour off it

AS Foxes are feral pests here in Oz, they can be legally hunted all year round...

Though, it should also be noted, that they are not major pests in most areas, so that many landowners often let them be..

Much worse are wild dogs, rabbits, feral pigs, goats and cats in some regions, even deer in the Victorian high country;  so farmers tend to be more proactive in getting rid of them.

Nicko, Victor and Stormee would have no shortage of places to hunt over here, if they were happy to only hunt the feral species..
