Another 'good' fox
This morning there was another dead fox in Chicca's paddock, alongside the mobile hen house. This time there was no doubt who killed it because Chicca was in there on her own. Monte wouldn't go back in with the chooks last night, preferring to camp at the front door!
As you can see it was a miserable mangy specimen - but they can do a lot of damage if they get at the hens. Many of the foxes around here are badly affected by Sarcoptic Mange which is a problem for our dogs and we need to treat some of them every six months or so
