    I fancy feeding some poor buggers that visit my garden daily. What with? Doggy dry food? Urgent repl, please!

    Yep, Derbyshire Fox Rescue are excellent. They have given me sound advice in the past.

    btw any left overs/scraps/bread & jam will be appreciated.

    I just put out whatever food I don’t eat or has just passed its use by date. They’re always gone by the morning, and our foxes look particularly healthy!

    I found out recently that Plymouth city council trap foxes and then release them out in the boonies. They then get shot pretty quickly by the local farmers. Does that count as humane disposal?

    Can be. Depends on lots of things. It’s never, IME, as cut and dried as yes or no.

    lead would be my option or you could just feed the rats which will keep the foxes fed.

    I left my turkey carcase out for them after Christmas, they take dead pigeons for me too.

    Foxes do indeed eat rats anagallis_arvensis. Which makes them the only natural predators which will kill rats in towns. However feeding rats is of course quite unnecessary, as humans through their unhygienic habits and life styles will always ensure that there is a plentiful supply of food for them. Let’s just hope we always have a good supply of foxes to deal with them.

    They dont need feeding with anything, leave them be.
    The RSPCA release urban foxes from their animal hospitals back into the countryside(illegal I think)and the bloody things either try to take Lambs or starve to death as they dont know how to do anything other than tip bins over or eat dog food left out for them!

    Surely start with something to fatten them then finish with sage and onion…

    I’m sure they’ll make a fine ‘chicken’ meal.
