Trapping the fox
Apparently there are two foxes so that’s why the chickens had such a hard time the other day when they killed four of my chickens. This fox looks a bit larger than the other one, so maybe it’s a male.
Barry shows up
But before I could do the moving my brother Barry showed up for a dirt bike ride so I moved the fox into the new box and put it in the shade to take care of when I got back.
Eventually we ended up in our resting spot at the Top of the World. Barry needed to do some adjusting on his hammock which took him a few tries but once he had it, he climbed in the thing while I sat on the ground.
From there we rode around some more and eventually ended up back at my house where Barry took off for his place.
Released the fox
I had a break and them dealt with the fox in the box and let it go down the road a ways, hopefully far enough away from my house so it doesn’t return.
Trying for the other one
I sat around chair hopping the rest of the day and in the evening I set the box trap to try and catch the other fox, although this other one is more careful than the other one so I might not catch it.
I’d rather keep the foxes around to eat the mice and rats, but I just can’t have them eating all my chickens.
