If it was a Staffordshire bull terrier running loose in the wild, people would soon want THAT shot!

The comments are to be expected as the number of urban foxes rise and are treated as cute visitors to the garden

I was chatting to a boke on Sunday that gets called by a Steggles chicken grower in outer Melbourne to help with the feral cat and fox population.
He grows the chicks from day old to processing weight at 8 weeks.
The chicks are kept in a barn situation.
The farmer was having trouble with feral cats getting into the barn and eating the chicks.
The bloke and his mate managed to shoot three very large feral cats.

Then he was telling me about the foxes.
They tried whistling them up and had absolutely no response from the foxes.
Then they put a bin lid down and piled on Maccas.
The bin lid was soon swamped by foxes.
Seems urban foxes don't know what a squealing bunny sounds like but know all about Maccas.

Sorry yes its McDonalds.
Wonder if urban foxes have a shorter lifespan from eating so much junk food.

Soy is a high proponent in Mc D's stuff (not worth calling 'food') and soy is well known for 'beefing up' anything...people, animals, birds etc....(it affects the hormones...so kinda like getting steroids...)
