Question by Bulldog: One fox killed 23 of my chickens 2 rabbits & bert the ferret in one night so why do they get so much sympathy?
If they were wolves & it was children they wer killing the hunt would be considered an essential service….. well Bert the ferret was like a furry son to me & the rabbits wer his sisters the chickens his mad aunties. As you can see i love animals as much as the next man but when i see that fox he will be shot (the BA@#ARD)

  2. If killing was instant and to keep numbers down or protect chickens then it wouldn’t be so bad, it’s the hunting down and being torn apart by dogs i think is cruel.

  4. because you are in the fox’s natural territory, not the other way around. It is not natural for you to have dozens of chickens caged in, so it’s nothte fox’s fault that you bring a delicious meal to his doorstep. it is your fault for disturbing the natural order. The fiox is just being a fox and you are just trying to insult a stupid animal.

  5. The Fox is doing what comes naturally. YOU know the fox is there, you want animals, then put them up where the fox can’t get them! It’s not fair to the fox for you to put food out and then kill him for taking it! YOU ARE THE ONE WITHOUT BRAINS!!! Maybe we should shoot you instead, for being stupid!!

  7. I think you should shoot him and i love all animals but my god if he is going to kill all your animals he needs to be put down, OR, you could get him in a have a heart trap and take him “across the river”!!!! it works with skunks…

  8. Because it is a natural thing to do, you going out shooting them IS NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Maybie you should protect your animals more therefore preventing then being killed. Annother thing if you kill that innocent fox then surly you are just as bad. Shame on you.

  9. i understand where you are coming from as i to love animals a lot and if anything ever killed any of mine i would be very mad, but how about not killing him? i know thats hard to think about but you need to understand that it is in the foxes nature to kill. He doesnt know the difference thats why i cant try and kill my cats everytime they bring home a dead bird or a baby rabbit. I know it hurts and i know its hard but it is in his nature and it is not his fault. You can not train him to not eat your pets, the only thing you can do is better protect your pets, try a little barn for them, with a lock maybe, or you could keep them inside but i would imagine that would get noisy, dont kill him because it is not his fault it is how his ancestors act so thats how he will act. If you want to get rid of him try calling pest control or something, dont kill him.

  10. the first person’s answer: HAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH

  11. I agree absolutely. It is urban people who like foxes as they never have any dealings with them. I watched a whole litter of bunnies die when I was unsuccessful in feeding them after their mother was one of many rabbits killed by a fox when I lived in London. Now I live in the country, I am pleased if I just wing one of these devil creatures as I draw comfort from thoughts of its lingering death.

  13. That’s awful, I’m not surprised you feel that way. I’m especially sorry to hear about Bert, I’ve had ferret too. One of mine was killed by a dog, I would have gladly shot it.

  14. I don’t know that they do.
    Of course he was only doing what his “job description” said.
    And I would use a 20 guage.
    Aim well. Sorry to hear about your loss.

  15. Firstly ferrets kill rabbits and chickens so if you think he thought of them as sisters your family must be odd.
    They get sympathy for the same reason you feel bad for your ferret.He was killed by a much bigger animal and though ferrets can fight fiercely stood no chance.
    Foxes are hunted by large packs of animals who are all much bigger than them and can run faster and further so it’s just as unfair.
    You should buy better shelters for your animals.Contary to what lots of tight country people claim it is possible to make a hen house or a shed with rabbits in fox proof!

  16. I had 12 ducks,10 guineas, 30 chickens. I lost 1 chicken and 2 ducks to hawks when they were young one big hawk came with in 8 feet and almost got one duck but at the last moment few on by at about 2 feet off the ground. I move them in to a enclosed pen with a tin roof but didn’t have enough to cover the roof fight, it worked for a while then I started loosing ducks one at a time, I found a loose place in the stapled chicken wire, by that time I was down to 3 ducks, the guineas roosted in tree I thought they would be safe, being full grown. But they started disappearing one ever few days, I have one guinea left I keep it with the ducks. I also lost some chicken that wanted to roost with the guineas. I was down to 18 chickens and kept them locked up tight, but started loosing one chicken a night, one night caught a raccoon, just killed a chicken, drop it crawled into the duck pen and hide by the roof. a few days later I shot it. how I have seen two gray foxes.
