Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A fox believed to be the biggest killed in Britain was shot after attacking lambs on an Aberdeenshire farm.

    It weighed 38lb 1oz and was 4ft 9in from its nose to the tip of its tail. On average the animals tend to weigh up to about 15lbs.

    That's some size of a beastie.

    BBC News - 'Largest fox killed in UK' shot on Aberdeenshire farm
  2. "Jonathan Reynolds, senior research scientist at the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), said: "A 38lbs fox would have been unthinkable a few years ago.

    "We don't know why they are getting bigger, but one possible explanation is that they are getting better fed in urban areas."

    Well Mr are a bit of a cock! Rothiemay is about as far from being Urban as you can get!!

  3. Impressive picture, Wonder if it'll get stuffed or anyalized to see what steroids it's been using!
  4. Depends on whether or not people are dumping 'rescued' urban foxes in the area as they do across Devon from time to time.

    I thought you were quoting headlines from the Sunday Sport. You missed "London bus found on the moon."

    Read about this yesterday. They had a quote from somebody from some organisation called The Fox Preservation Society or some such. Batting on about how they save endangered urban foxes who are dead cuddly really. The article claimed that super size foxes could be down to people feeding them dog food. So I went to see if I could find the quote.

    I didn't. Because I was stopped dead in my tracks by something called The National Fox Welfare Society suggesting we all leave jam butties, or Marmite or honey ones for foxes. To cure mange in foxes.

    Jam butties could cure killer disease affecting Birmingham foxes - Sunday Mercury

    I am fairly sure these people do not live in the country? Jam butties. No wonder they are getting to be the size of horses. Jesus.
  14. Very very clever,shooting a healthy well grown fox,suppose it will end up stuffed and the shooter can then have bragging rights earn himself a few drinks,,,Brings to mind the guy who killed the last breeding pair of Dodo,,he didn't brag for long.....
  15. MTFU, your quim is dripping.
