The animal equivalent of benefit scroungers... getting a free dinner out of the efforts of tax-paying poultry farmers, or scavenging through bins. In the countryside they are pikeys, and in the city they are chavs.
I look forward to the day that foxes eat the child of some vegetarian bunny-hugger, and the sentimental press stops calling for their protection, and instead calls for their end.
Well I trust you realise that you were in breach of the hunting act whilst doing so and can be prosecuted whether you caught the mangy beast or not.
New Labour's 'hunting ban', well done for spending more Parliamentary time on this than the Iraq War and yet all they have to show for it is an unenforceable act that criminalises the normally law-abiding, tax-paying citizen, made a mockery of the law and ensured that the same numbers of foxes are killed, but now only with snares, guns and gas. They must be very proud.
Then again here in the US the grey squirrels have taken over my garden and steal all the bird food. When the cat goes to the window the squirrels just look and then hold up a paw with the middle claw extended. Rats with fluffy tails!!
Over the weekend a fox killed 2 squirrels in my garden and I was grateful to the fox. The coyotes do the same thing but the coyotes are a major danger to kids and foxes don't seem to bother people.
