    Must have been a whole family of foxes to take 7, so very sorry for your losses.

    Nope sadly it was one fox but my geese where stuck at a bunch of gates and the fox just killed as many as he could since he knows im going to throw the dead one away for him later and some geese did escape the fox but went into others ppls property :/ and some geese arent still found yet

    Losing one goose is nothing like losing 7.

    Still hard though. I really don't look forward to egg laying season.

    I am so very sorry. [​IMG] Just devastating! I would be sick over it. I lost 2 goslings to a fox last year and still get upset every time i think about it. I keep all my pens wired with electric fence now, and If they are our free ranging I am with them, and carry a rifle. Hope you find your missing geese.
