I guess I should have clarified. It was scrawny, had four legs, and looked like it had mange. It definitely did not look like this.

A friend of mine claimed to have several foxes around his place here in the mountains of NC. He said they kept getting bolder and bolder and wouldn't even run when he pulled into the drive. He let that go for a little over a week and when his young son started asking about the puppies he knew he had to do something. Ended up shooting all of them because he couldn't get them to stay away, they had no fear of humans.
If I didn't know this guy to be honest I'd call BS but this guy doesn't tell stories.

I believe the guy Spitty. I see a couple of different foxes regularly in my edge-of-town neighborhood on my evening walks, usually about 11PM. Last night, i saw one in the corner yard of the street, then again later about halfway down the street. The second time, it backed off about 20 feet into a yard & watched me; it didn't run away until i walked at least 6 feet into the yard. I think it has accepted humans as a part of its environment.

Bloody hell Davy, is there a lack of rabbits in the UK or what??

Quote:
The University of Bristol's Mammal Research Unit estimates there are 225,000 adult rural foxes and 33,000 urban foxes across Britain.
BBC News - How common are fox attacks on humans?

Quote from the founder of a group called the "National Fox Welfare Society":

Quote:
"We receive pictures of foxes curled up on people's settees. People put food inside their houses and think it is lovely to share their living room with a wild fox," he said.

"But if the fox gets into that habit, the people two doors down might not be that happy."

Have to say that sounds bizarre! I guess foxes aren't classified as feral vermin, then. Would last about as along as it takes to chamber a round here, heh. I saw a juvenile fox at the range here on Saturday...bet quite a few club members would have had itchy trigger fingers lol



You have rabies over there too, right? Bit of a worry

Wallace & Grommit just have to come to mind with that question.
