Fox on allotment

Posted: 21/03/2013 at 19:42

here in Bristol we have fair few foxes and recently watched as they mated again to bring forth a new cubs.My daughter has foxes where she has chickens and she lets hens out every day.She has not lost any cross fingers because she never leaves them untended and locks them up at dusk in secure unit.The trouble she does have is with rats but with predator its there dinner and they don't see it as you do,as you don't see that calf that is veal,its dinner.so we have to tolerate as we are the worse offenders on this planet.

MOB rants

small rant coming forth,I was walking the dogs through a wooded valley with a stream running along side leading to an open area of open grass leading to the river.This is a place of wild life and beauty spoilt by dirty humans dumping litter,beds,chairs,litter of all sorts,plastics,bikes etc,detritus of humans worse than anything an animal could do.This was a place some 30 years ago was were you could walk with out seeing litter every inch of the way.The people who live here dump things over their fences (including plastic windows)yet they have a lovely out look that they and others just don't care about grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
