Bloody foxes

Well they would be bloody if I could get hold of the damn thing !

Another visit from the fox , this time in broad day light, mid afternoon. Lost 8 hens , and I am really p*****d off . I cant poison it , in case something else takes the bait like a dog or a red kite , and I can't shoot it cos I never see it , so trapping is the only answer , and I haven't got a trap! Hoping for a nasty road accident.

The alpacas did save some hens , they were making such a racket with their alarm calls that DH went to see, cos he was in at the time!! and I think between them they scared the fox , but not before he had taken my beloved Brahma !

And yesterday I heard of somebody in a town near here who feeds the damn things ?! ....

:( I am so sorry. I hope you get that fox soon. I think I would be standing guard ready for some target practice.

Quite agree!
Sorry about your hens - the fox was quite sadistic when he killed some of ours but luckily he hasn't been near the hens for over a year.

Sorry to hear about the chickens. Here it's coyotes and coons, but the dogs and llama have really helped keep mine safe.
