We have a fox problem. Neighbour saw a fox coming out of my yard twice so it is confirmed as a fox. Lost a bird last night, almost lost my big rooster but I guess the fox couldnt kill him (he is a huge bird). He managed to kill the big dumb ugly hen that stays outside at night. I still am confused as to why the rooster was out.. maybe he got kicked out of the coop prior to us closing the door for the night. He's lucky to be alive. He has a war wound on the back of his head but I am positive he will make it. I can buy a trap locally for about 100 bucks but the guy at the store said raccoon traps do not work for foxes. Is this true?? I called the game warden first thing this morning and he brushed me off. They used to lend out traps but not anymore. He said get a trapper- I said okay do you have any names? No. Thanks for all that help! So- please share your fox killing wisdom with me. My father says to poison but we have dogs around. It is very doable to have the dogs locked up and tied far away from the poison. We do not have any stray animals nearby that we would be concerned about. My father said rat poison and wet cat food- is this what I can use? I would prefer not to poison it. I would prefer to trap it and shoot it in the face. Poison seems like an agonizing death, as much as I hate it I do not want it to suffer any longer than it has to. Please share your fox killing wisdom with me. I am in dire need of it!
