    I don't have any foxes, but there is a family of rats living under the coop that seem to be the size of foxes!

    I'd imagine it would depend where you live. We are literally a 3 minute drive to the city centre so sure shooting the ones got ours would have resulted in a visit from the boys in blue lol

    My mums neighbour set traps for theirs but mum reakons the fox screams were awful. It was one of those traps slams shut on their foot.

    We don't exactly shoot them :) We do have traps and electrical wire traps, either way they are dead. A mate of mine lays out similar to bear traps, we lay to listen, when we trap one we kill it :)

    Our major promlem out here is wild dogs, we do go out every couple of months and shoot them. Much to my disgrace, puppies as well, but it's something we need to do.
    But that's out on a property not on my house block.

    I couldn't do that but I applaud you for doing it. We had a pack of domestic dogs killed my bosses sheep here and it was an awful sight. The thought of wild packs and what they could do is scary.

    Speaking of dogs, were off to the huon show today. The girls are showjumping and they run a " doggy showjumping " course along side. The spectators love it.
    Finally the rain has stopped and the forecast is 20 . When this fog lifts , it should reveal blue skies.
