    If the fox continues to come back and harass your flock, you may want to consider installing a hot wire on your pen. One zap educates them rapidly.

    Or stab and kill it
     
  3. Rest assured that you'll have many more chances to chase Mr. Fox unless you take steps to relocate him to fox paradise.

    Agree 100% with Sourland and Akrnaf2. It WILL be back, so if you can't shoot it definitely invest in an electric fence!

  7. Well, I guess if it gets close enough to shoot with my pistol I could just claim self defense. lol (I didn't say that!).

    I have an acquaintance who is a retired cop and even he said he would defend his animals first and answer questions later!
