Foxes Live

Anyone watch this?

Very interesting. The tracker device was a good idea, just shows how far they are willing to travel. I have my own views on foxes good and bad and watching this wont change my mind, however the production team have done a good job placing lots of cameras in the right places to make us see these foxes in their earths.

This will be a good series.

Only saw a bit of last nights programme so cant really say much but slightly shocked at how mangey lots of the foxes were. Our country foxes look a good deal fatter and healthier. Saw one this morning on my ride. a glossy dog fox with a magnificent brush. Mind you the amount of bunnies around i'm not surprised! Love Lizzie

Agree Liz, they're normally a nice size with good coats, however I have scoped a fair few mangy foxes.

In this series one mangy vixen had 3 cubs, they died over night possibly by eating poisoned food. You could see her taking each dead cub out of the den, then later herself vacating. The next day another vixen in superb condition moves in with her cubs to that same earth, then guess what....that mangy fox had also moved back in and was feeding the other vixens cubs! Double milk all round I say!
