Discussion in 'Nature & Wildlife' started by teddybard, May 28, 2014.
Ducks was out on our decking this morning when I let Suki out, heard a load of quacking
Suki only caught one and had it in its mouth, had to prise his jaws open, still alive I put it safely away from the dog, a bit lopsided it waddled off.
What the hell is this? Make Movan cry day or sumflink???
:Sad:Yep. Nature can be cruel but it is a fight for survival .. not sport. Really sad that, Roger... hug for Sheila.
I've had to ask my neighbours not to feed the foxes as we lost all our hens a couple of years back.
We had quite a discussion as to why feeding foxes would not protect the hens (more food = more baby foxes who would require more food - food = hens!) It was a very rational and civil discussion
A well fed fox does look magnificent - but do not be fooled, foxes are predatory killing machines. They are not sweet.

I was astonished to read Birmingham Council's policy on dealing with urban foxes. (Probably the policy used by many other authorities as well).
Trap them, cage them, take them fifty miles into rural wherever, let them go. Birmingham's problem has a (temporary) solution. However, Urban foxes don't hunt, cant hunt, never been taught to hunt, so they starve to death.
Now THAT is cruelty. :Angry:
We saw one through the Bino's last week and even at close on half a mile it was the size of a Labrador...
And it might not have been a fox, it could have been Eastern E........
You trying to say it was very large????? :Eek!:
That's what I [STRIKE]said[/STRIKE] implied wasn't it?
I'm going to have to start breeding wire Fox terriers the size of Airdales at this rate...
75% of Manchester Tarts asked in a recent survey if they would be interested in breeding with wire fox terriers said 'NO'....:BigGrin::Wink:
Don't you have something useful to do? :Cool:
Oh forget it, I just realised who I was asking... :Wink::BigGrin:
That's wildlife for you: Heartwarming and heartbreaking. But - that is why they have such large clutches, so here's hoping the rest make it through safely.
97% of *Funsters* surveyed agreed that 'NO', Tootles has sod all else to do. :thumb:
100% of Tootles wife surveyed said 'YES', she did have 22,567 jobs awaiting his attention........
my mate said you can make quite a nice coat from them.
Part of the point made with the OP
Releasing them in Birmingham Could be Worse for the fox anyway
Airedales are bigger
For Fox's sake:Wink:
... and speaking of large clutches, here's a shot I took at Loch Garten a few years back. (Great to just sit up with your camera and a coffee and see what comes by....13 by the way + mum)
There's nothing wrong with Manchester Tarts --
All the ones I know must be well educated - well all their Tatoo's are spelt correctly. :Rofl1::Rofl1:
That speaks volumes........:thumb::BigGrin:
Didn't spend that long in Urmston then:Rofl1:?
