RE: Fox and cubs in the garden

They always say you should never assume that a garden is fox-proof unless your fence is over 7 ft high. Even then I wouldn't trust a chain link fence.

RE: Fox and cubs in the garden

Foxes are terribly good at slinking through narrow gaps at the base of fences, too. Like limbo dancing only the other way up.

RE: Fox and cubs in the garden

I have fond memories of watching a vixen and her cubs playing one night in a small park in Bristol. One of the horses had broken a shaft, and we ended up stuck in the middle of St Johns or St Pauls or wherever it was called. Rather than wake up and find the wheels on the wagons stolen, we ended up staying up all night and heading off at dawn through the streets of Bristol; to get the hell out of Babylon! It was a hot summer and we were traveling by horse and cart from Wales to Cornwall for a festival there. It was great watching the cubs playing .

RE: Fox and cubs in the garden

We have loads of foxes round here, but you normally hear them rather than see them at night. My parents however have the opposite problem, you can see foxes out at all hours of the day and they are not frightened of anything, they just stand and stare at you as if to say 'this is our territory, get out of our way if you don't mind'. The ironic thing is Mum and Dad only live about three quarters of a mile from us, yet the foxes operate in a totally different way.

We have fox that visits out garden and plays with the dog, i spotted it one night and nearly walked on it. It stood not five feet away from me and looked me over, bold as brass, before slinking off about its business.

Ah, sujay, what you are describing is the local biker gang of foxes. You can recognize them even off their bikes because they wear shades after dark.

Cool

The funny thing is, my parents have an apple tree in the middle of the garden and they frequently find the foxes have played with the windfalls in the middle of the night!

Now I know! We live on a hill and there is a patch of grass running down the hill between the houses, and the foxes sit at the top and screech (I mean talk) to the ones down the bottom. They certainly don't need loudspeakers that's for sure! Thumbs Down
