Fox Cull In London.

Evidently to stop foxes eating food waste that's being left on the streets. So the idiots would rather leave the food for rats to eat?

Human leaves food on street = human kills foxes

Sounds perfectly logical.

AOL...that's a blast from the past.

Foxes also kill rats, so perform a useful service.

Yes, Fleur and generally they look more attractive than the fox pictured in the article linked to. I saw an absolutely magnificent specimen last night running across the road into a neighbour's garden.

All that being chased across fields by packs of dogs and and behorsebacked toffs keeps them fit and healthy.

Aye, they kill so many small children, night after night, that it's not even newsworthy any more.

Agaliarept - 06 Dec 2017 14:41:18 (#8 of 44)

Arf!

We have loads of them down in Eastbourne. Big bushy tails. I think they're great. I'd love a domesticated fox as a pet.

<<they kill so many small children, night after night, that it's not even newsworthy any more.>>

pretty much like guns over here, then.

Agaliarept - 06 Dec 2017 14:42:46 (#10 of 44)

I thought it was the small children doing the shooting?

brooklyn - 06 Dec 2017 14:43:18 (#11 of 44)

only of smaller children.

#8 no you wouldn't - they stink.

Agaliarept - 06 Dec 2017 14:44:26 (#13 of 44)

I was right...though the main victims seem to be themselves :/

Even if I bathed him every day?

Their poo is quite bad thinking about it. Oh well, have to shelve that along with the idea for a pet hippo.

I loved our local foxes when I was living in London. They were totally fearless, and it was great to see them sitting on the garden wall grinning down at the neighbours' yapping little dogs.

Just like a former neighbour, if they could learn to shag a bit quieter I'd be more in favour

Flicker - 06 Dec 2017 14:53:27 (#17 of 44)

I heard some shagging last night. I much prefer the wise hoot of the owls in the neighbouring trees.

FluffyKitten - 06 Dec 2017 15:35:17 (#18 of 44)

There are foxes in my neighborhood, which I think is wonderful.

JessicaEccles6 - 06 Dec 2017 15:37:57 (#19 of 44)

There are quite a few foxes near us. They ripped the rubbish bags open during the bins strike but then they also ate the rats.

Two foxes were having a fight in my garden in the early hours. I kicked one up the arse- like the animal lover I am- and they both skittered off. It's lovely to see them.

Interestingly, the cats just totally ignore them.

FleurDuMal - 06 Dec 2017 15:40:32 (#20 of 44)

We once had five (5) foxes in our garden having a fight. I know this, because they made the most unholy din, and woke us up at 3.00 am.
