Well is all started a morning a couple weeks ago when a fox broke into my bantam pens. I lost 5 birds I Assumed a raccoon because I found the tracks from where he dug under the fence. So I put up live traps and caught the darn thing. However, the nature of the attack didn't fit the raccoon's killing style (Raccoons will kill one bird at a time were as I lost 5) So maybe something was still out there?? I didn't know. I just hoped I had caught the culprit. A week later I Heard the birds yelling again early in the morning, So I bolted out the door. Whatever just killed my LF cochin hen Jumped back Over the fence!!!! So now this thing climbs and Digs! Sheesh! I started letting da' birds out late in the morning to keep the thing away. So now, 4 days later, it seems like it's gone, I let the birds free range. I hear my brother yelling "FOX!!!!" so I look out the window. There is a fox right next to the Darn house EATING MY Ameraucanas butt off!!! At this point, I let my Doberman out, and she chases it into the neighbors yard. later that morning it came back and tried to eat my Brahma. What the heck do i do!? It's coming out in the day now! Can I shoot it?
