    I would start by talking to your neighbors,see if they will "evict" him.

    Think about upping security with a electric fence. it's a quick set up and very effective against most intruders, including troublesome neighbor kids plus it can give you the option of free range or at least skirt the fence to stop them from digging under

    I wish I knew the answer to your question too. I have lost 2 in 24 hours. My neighbors also tells me that the fox is perfectly harmless, he plays in their yard and doesn't eat the bunnies. Well I guess not, he has done eat my one of my sexlinks, a jersey giant and now a leg horn!

    Talk to your neighbors if they wont help you then go with box traps and electric fence around your property that should take care of your problem
