I just hate to see a defenceless animal in pain, there is no wild life around here, and I do take on that foxes are preditiors, but thats the chain of life!

Eldrick I understand why you feel as you do about them in that case.
And just in case Taff catches it to treat am I right in thinking she mustn't release it again as it's considered vermin? I'm not 100% sure of this but it might be worth considering Taff in case you get stuck with it and not be able to find it a home.

nope fox can be released only squirrels get the chop at vets..............xx

Yep, I agree totally, no animal should suffer in any way. 100%.

I personally would be ringing the council if it's an urban fox. They should have a pest control officer. A mange ridden fox is a health hazard. It is cruel to imprison a wild animal to try to cure it of mange.

Ahh thanks gran. I know there are some things once caught that mustn't be released.

Eldrick

Eldrick Report 2 Jun 2008 16:30

Yes, foxes can indeed be released.

Do it near me and I will shoot it very quickly. A fox that has been introduced to humans becomes a bigger pest than a totally wild one.

There's only one way to deal with a mangy urban fox!

Awe Eldrick................where is your sensitive side?
only joking of course i realise they are a problem to farmers and nature can be cruel.

lol

Urban foxed dont do a great deal of harm, they can be left alone most of the time i suppose. Even I confess to finding them quite cute and appealing in that context.

But transporting them out into the countryside to release them is basically signing a death warrant.

El, you will have to shoot me 1st then the animal, sorry mate but some animals are worth more than some people.

Still no reply from the vet...........

SallyF

SallyF Report 2 Jun 2008 17:26

And you'd think that an animal in pain or distress would have them acting fairly quickly. Otherwise they'd only be in it for the money........

Taff Report 2 Jun 2008 17:26

maybe he wants to put me down instead!
and I DONT want a silly reply from that thanks!!
