OK, but remember this.

You started it. Fair enough? The lines are drawn and it is clear what you think of me :-)

I feel it my duty to let you know what I think of you :-)

Let me make that absolutely clear to everyone - you attacked me first. What follows hereafter is purely retaliation after that :-)

Not even you could call that unfair....:-)

is that meant to scare me?


Eeyore13 Report 3 Jun 2008 14:49

The Trap will be a cage-not one with teeth or a snare & they'll come out quickly (especially if they only have one)& you'll be shown how to release unexpected animals.
Good luck Taff,I'm sure it'll work out. :)


Eldrick Report 3 Jun 2008 14:49

Not at all. I would personally find it quite disturbing to learn that anyone was scared by a computer monitor. But whatever. If you are, then I have no suggestions at all.

I do find your comments rather stereotypical and suggestive of several things however.

Politeness (an alien concept, I realise) forbids me from mentioning them.

Taff Report 3 Jun 2008 15:23

Thank you julie, I'me sure it will.....hopefully.


Eldrick Report 3 Jun 2008 15:25

Yep. Its been suffering for over 24 hours now.


Because its kinder to wait for the RSPCA than actually do anything about it.

Animal lover? Yeah, alright.


Eeyore13 Report 3 Jun 2008 15:31

Elderick-its mange,not rabies- calm down.Not all of us have a gun & I couldnt use one anyway-I'd get a vision of Basil Brush before I pulled the trigger!
Rspca do their best(probably)


MarionfromScotland Report 3 Jun 2008 15:33

Is it still in the garden Taff, can you see it?


Eldrick Report 3 Jun 2008 15:36

Calm down? Its not me thats posting hysterical threads asking for advice about a mangy fox FGS!

Last year, I shot 34 of the stinking things on this farm alone!

I think I could more than adequately deal with a scabby mangy fox in my garden without having to wait days on end for the RSPCA to turn up, lol


jgee Report 3 Jun 2008 15:38

foxs are beautiful


SallyF Report 3 Jun 2008 15:38

All this mange mentioning is making my head itch!


Eeyore13 Report 3 Jun 2008 15:40

I know,but like I said not all of us are capable of shooting foxes or wildlife we consider 'fluffy'.Whereas you could.(& I'm not knocking you for that either!)


Taff Report 3 Jun 2008 15:46

No Marion, I havent seen it to-day.
I also dont keep a firearm in my home.


SallyF Report 3 Jun 2008 15:46

Popcorn anyone?
*holds bag out to share round*


Eldrick Report 3 Jun 2008 15:50

How kind of the RSPCA to treat your report with such prompt consideration. I am sure you will be very happy with the relief of the suffering you were so concerned about.

What good advice you heeded, eh.


Taff Report 3 Jun 2008 15:54

I dont employ a gamekeeper so the RSPCA was my only option.


Eldrick Report 3 Jun 2008 15:58

Yes, of course it was.

Your council wont have an environmental health or pest control dept. Unlike every other council in the entire country.

But foxes are too pink and fluffy and cuddly to be pests I suppose. Better to just let them suffer.


MarionfromScotland Report 3 Jun 2008 16:01

Taff, I think Eldrick is saying you should have just hit it over the head, which to 'some' might be easy to do or shoot it with the gun that you don't have lol

You have done your best whatever the outcome.



Taff Report 3 Jun 2008 16:01

Poor fox or stinking things,?
make your mind up.
