3 Foxes Dispatched in Shinfiled Reading, Fox Control
I gave up with the collarum fox trap on the fox in shinfiled! Not that the trap wouldn’t work, just that I couldn’t get the fox to “take the bait”. I and the client decided it would be better to shoot them as her garden was large enough to make a safe shoot. I climbed a tree and waited for around 3 hours without seeing a fox. Just as I was about to get down from the tree as it was getting dark and hard to see, I herd the wire fence moving and a vixen fox walked towards me, followed by two more foxes. I managed to shoot the vixen safely, and i started to call the other foxes back. both of them came right up to the dead fox! Both foxes were dispatched humanely with a .17hmr rifle.
The client said she had seen more than one fox in the garden, she said “the big ones chases my cat around the garden, and the other just watches”
