>otherwise known as : How to set a fox trap to catch a Bear

T’other morning, I was making breakfast and I could hear the maggies going absolutely nuts. Bear was conspicuously silent.
When I looked out, I could see the magpies frantically circling around the head of a very large fox.

Foxes* are not good when there are small, relatively newborn animals around.

So the last few nights PeteND has set a [humane] trap with rancid chicken giblets

so far no fox

I was on surrogate-mother duty today because both Pete and Brenda needed to be elsewhere
Bear was already over next door playing with Misty and Molly

and look what greeted me when I went over to feed Lucky:

is that a hang dog expression or what ??

Obviously they need to brush up their reading skills

* foxes and rabbits are not native to Australia. They were introduced by barmy English colonists who wanted to go hunting!

    >Very glad that it was a humane trap, although the thought occurs as to what Pete would do with a live fox, since they can’t be released.

    >I was trying to avoid stating the obvious, Nadie, my love … to whit: the only good fox is a dead one.They are vermin and introduced vermin at that … a harsh reality perhaps, but that’s life in the bush.

    >I have two of those fox furs the ladies used to wear over their shoulders….one I have over the top of the sofa….just as a warning to certain other live animals about what can happen….it is a memory deal also as Dad shot it when Mum was in hospital after my birth and had it made into the glorious shoulder fur..such bad bad days I grew up in….and somewhere else I think I have Grandma’s …I certainly have a fantastic photo of Grandma in hers. Should blog it one day.That would put the cat amongst the pigeons.But you could drape one of them curled up in the cage……lol
