I has one fox a few weeks ago, now I have a pair. Last week on two
successive days they were out and about in daylight in clear view.

They are lovely animals:

Sorry about the quality but a really big lens would be required to do
much better.

Like snakes there is a limit to how tolerant you can be even if they
are cute. A neighbour has lost two ducks and six chooks.

Both days I sent to pups after them. Leila went along for the fun of
it but Flynn was deadly serious, chasing flat out into the gully. I
couldn't see what happened but there was quite some high pitched
squealing so either he caught one or it was very close and the fox was
in a panic and ummm shall we say soiled itself. Flynn came back
looking very smug.

They haven't reappeared in daylight since and the swamp hens and
herons are about in the vicinity so they may have decided they don't
like my place so much. Good boy Flynn!

Gee, I know they're pests and a nuisance and all that, but what
beautiful creatures they are!

Years ago, we used to feed our horses very early in the morning, before
work. One morning, my sister and I sat in the car, sipping coffee from a
thermos. As we sat there, a female fox slunk out of the bush and sidled
right up to the stableyards. As we watched in amazement, she hopped into
the trough and began helping the horse with his breakfast (hot bran
mash). The horse never missed a beat, continuing to chomp away and
barely recognising the interloper. After a minute or two, Ms Vixen
hopped out of the trough and trotted off with a large lump of bran mash
in her mouth. We saw this happen many times and eventually the dog fox
came as well. On one occasion, my brother-in-law reckons he came around
the stable corner and found a fox curled up on the rugged back of the
big eventer in his stable! I find this hard to believe, but the b-i-l
insists to this very day that he saw it.

We saw the pair and, eventually, a couple of their offspring for most of
a year, but then they moved on. They were beautiful, just like your
pair, David!

They are indeed gorgeous looking things, but then I haven't lost a chook to
one for a while so I can say that with some equanimity. I am positivley
murderous when they kill my chooks and have been known to do nasty things to
get rid of them.

Slight difference in toxicity though

I get a perverse pleasure when stretching foxes with a medium calibre


I don't even take pleasure with snails. It's just sump'thin' that
occasionally needs to be done.

Hey Ross

Billy is from the land over the sea where they don't have bluetongues,
ducks would do the job. I am still worried about those snails and
slugs killing his chooks though, they sound really mean.

Some of the neighbors put out beer for snails and slugs. After a couple
of pie tins of beer, the snails and slugs can get right abusive.

They, I mean, we don't have bluetongues, we got blue bellies

couldn't see what happened but there was quite some high pitched
squealing so either he caught one or it was very close and the fox was
in a panic and ummm shall we say soiled itself. Flynn came back
looking very smug.

They haven't reappeared in daylight since and the swamp hens and
herons are about in the vicinity so they may have decided they don't
like my place so much. Good boy Flynn!

They are indeed gorgeous looking things, but then I haven't lost a chook
to
one for a while so I can say that with some equanimity. I am positivley
murderous when they kill my chooks and have been known to do nasty
things
to
get rid of them.

I feel the same way about snails and slugs.
Slight difference in toxicity though

I get a perverse pleasure when stretching foxes with a medium calibre


I don't even take pleasure with snails. It's just sump'thin' that
occasionally needs to be done.

We have a number of large frogs in the yard , now I doubt it's related
but no snails are evident


Sadly, we have a pride of pussies (feline), and frogs, and lizards don't
really stand a much of a chance here. I'd like to get me some ducks or
chickens, but I worry about the wear and tear from the cats, and our
gimpy dog, Beau. A goose may be possible, but then I'd worry about the
wear and tear of the goose on the cats, gimpy dog, and me :O(

Mad dog Republicans to the right. Democratic spider webs to the left. True conservatives, and liberals not to be found anywhere in the phantasmagoria
of the American political landscape.

America is not broke. The country is awash in wealth and cash.
It's just that it's not in your hands. It has been transferred, in the
greatest heist in history, from the workers and consumers to the banks
and the portfolios of the uber-rich.
