    Wow! I never thought of a fox coming at a human. I have had raccoons come into my house though.

    Dont know if I would leave my doors open??

    More of those "unintended consequences" the lefties NEVER consider when making their knee jerk legislation.

    "unintended consequences"

    You are so right

    Ban guns, gun crime goes up

    Ban fox hunting, they start attacking babies

    Ban deer hunting, we have the highest population for a thousand years.

    I will be retiring in AZ in five years this country is stuffed

    Cities

    When city dwellers dictate the rules in the countryside there are no limits to the crimes against honest folk.

    The foxes got in though the back door

    The coalition goverment got in by the same route

    You should look on youtube for the Taser-cam video of the female LEO tasing the crap out of a fox that had attacked some lady. It turned out to be rabid, i believe.

    I've seen a couple down the road & will be watching for them. My cats well-being outranks any respect i have for Nature's gingers.

    Yeah, they are trying to ban fox hunting here in Utah as well.
    But I gotta agree with them on this one.
    They're crafty little devils aren't they!

    I hear the wolfs are getting out of control in the areas surrounding Yellowstone.

    We just had the first "confirmed" account of wolves killing a human up in Alaska in the last 6 months. I bet we'll see more of the same in the lower 48 if the wolf population isn't put in check.

    Wierd...

    Foxes are usualy very timid and non aggressive except for small animals or chickens in a pen. Maybe it is just British foxes... What ever the case it is always a shame when animals attack humans especialy children...

    That should help the price of wool.

    I still don't understand the need for dangerous (to humans) animals outside of zoos & such. I understand that smart people disagree & for some good reason, but i just can't agree & am OK with agreeing to disagree.

    They keep the indigenous herbivore population from wreaking havoc on the ecosystem.

    First, as a native herbivore (primarily) i think that reinforces the "dangerous to people" problem. ;)

    Second, i wouldn't think there were enough bears & wolves to keep the deer & elk & such at sustainable levels without the assistance of hunters & wildlife management agencies. I think fostering human hunters would be safer, though they can be dangerous as well. The human hunter probably contributes far more to the economy, at the very least.

    I guess my view is slanted in part by my location; there are very few dangerous predators in MS. I do think they were breeding some red wolves at one point, on one of the barrier island IIRC. The only bear i've seen around here lives in a cage at the canoe rental place & seems to prefer PB&J's to human flesh.

    Well that's REALLY gonna help if they take all your guns away, isn't it? :rolleyes:


    Weird about that fox though...I never realised they'd get so close to humans. I once had a maurauding brushtail possum attack me in the middle of the night while I was asleep, but then they live in the roof, so its a bit more expected.

    Do you know if this ban included fox-hunting for vermin control (or solely sporting hunters)? if so I'd imagine farmers would be highly pissed off - newborn lambs are especially at risk.


    Step in the right direction; I hope it gets repealed :)


    This just reminded me, a fox ran right across the middle of the service range as we were shooting last Sunday (unscathed!) although I think a few of the members of our hunting club had to restrain themselves :p Pretty brazen fox, heh.

    Saw the first fox in town here just last weekend. He was sitting on the tee of driving range just few hundred yards from my house.
