hi all,

Any-one on here be able to help me sort out a fox problem? Please pm me, I'm in east Clare area. I have a fox coming day and night and has taken quite a few birds at this stage.

A good electric fence is the best long term solution, anything else and you are just fattening your birds up until the next fox comes along.

Glyn's right, 'Bill. Like it or not.

Spent my entire life doing nicely out of removing peoples 'problem creatures'. Looking back? All a bit of a racket, really. Foxes, at least. Ye take that one out? Bang! Empty territory. Next one'll fill it. And so on.

People who just like doing it, for fun, will swear up, down and sideways that I'm a fool and say 'ye just take care of That one too!'

What ever. I'm retired now. I have an electric (Mesh) fence and haven't lost one bird since that went up. And I *Feed* the foxes within six feet of it, every night.
