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. :Smile:

On and off for many years.
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...

F****** Enormous... :Eeek:


And it might not have been a fox, it could have been Eastern E........

Part of the point made with the OP

I was astonished to read Birmingham Council's policy on dealing with urban foxes. (Probably the policy used by many other authorities as well).

Releasing them in Birmingham Could be Worse for the fox anyway:cry:

You trying to say it was very large????? :whatthe:
Airedale?

There's nothing wrong with Manchester Tarts --

All the ones I know must be well educated - well all their Tatoo's are spelt correctly. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
