To poison these bloody foxes??

Everyday I wake up to rubbish all over my garden and driveway... Foxes shit on my decking and today my doormat!!!

The whole place stinks and it's getting ridiculous. They live in the bit behind my garden because our back neighbours have fenced off the weeds at the back of theirs...

My next door neighbours feed them. 3 times a day from a plate on their decking. Whole loaves of bread and pieces of meat and blocks of cheese...

I just want to get rid of them. Day one when we saw four baby foxes running around our garden we thought it was lovely, but now it's totally ridiculous. I have a 1 year old and a 3 year old and every morning I have to go out and clean and hose before my daughter can go out.

It must be okay to poison them or something right??

It's illegal you know that right?

curiousgeorgie Sat 19-Jul-14 10:30:39

Seriously!? You would be okay with this??

Easier to the neighbours surely

I hope you're fucking making some sort of sick joke. biscuit

curiousgeorgie Sat 19-Jul-14 10:30:55

Is it illegal? Aren't they vermin?

here educate yourself.

I'm not joking. It's been a year of rubbish and foxes shit everywhere. It's ridiculous.

Errm, I'm sure you were joking but I think you may be wise to get this thread deleted.

It's not going to go well.

curiousgeorgie Sat 19-Jul-14 10:32:31

You would all be happy then to have this everyday in a garden where your children play?

Ah. You're not joking.

Slight problem then.

curiousgeorgie Sat 19-Jul-14 10:33:29

I'm really not joking. I didn't know it was illegal, I won't do it. But I do need to get rid of them. It's disgusting. It's every single day.

Have a chat with your neighbours. Ask them to stop. Then use repellants and prickly bushes.

curiousgeorgie Sat 19-Jul-14 10:35:52

I've asked them to stop loads. We wrote them a letter, we asked them nicely, we asked them not so nicely...

They love them. They've named them! It's a dead end.

Call the local council - maybe it's a pest control thing. You also need to talk to your neighbours, until they stop feeding them you are not going to get rid.
You can get stuff to deter cats and things (lion poo), so maybe there is something you can get that will put the foxes off from coming in your garden.

Wouldn't talking to the neighbours - shocking suggestion, I know! - be easier?

And cleaner?

It's is messy, We had foxes and they stink up the place, and I worry about the dog getting mange from them, but can't go round poisoning things...

DidoTheDodo Sat 19-Jul-14 10:37:54

Aghast that you would even consider this.

You'd be happy or your children to go outside to find dead or dying foxes then?

MyFairyKing Sat 19-Jul-14 10:38:08

YANBU. Your house, your rulez hun.
