Bloody fox......

All 3 of my piggies are dead.

The fox killed one of them and 2 have gone. The hutch and run have been wrecked.

My rabbit died last week, and now this.

I'm gutted.

I only have one rabbit left. I'n going to get a big box and bring her into the house at night.

I fucking hate foxes.

How sad - we have had to do the same thing. Our bunny comes inside at night now

Oh my God , bloody Hell soaccident that is the worst nightmare,
I am so scared of foxes and my piggies, you cannot underestimate just how far these horrible vermin (that is what they are. Urban foxes are not cute or wild, they are parasites- and vicious ones at that) Angry

But you say 2 have gone? Are they loose? Do you have anywhere that they might be hiding?
Go out and poke about under shrubs, furniture, anywhere that they could be hiding. Take a rustley bag , they might respond to noise.

My NDN laugh at me when I charge down the garden with ammunition (pears, sticks, anything) and roar "Get Out You Mangey Git" at foxes. I slam a stout stick against the wooden fence to make a noise.
I am probably lowering the tone of the neighbourhood but even as a lentil-weaver, I hate these animals.

Hope you do find your 2 pigs, to have them missing and not knowing is heart breaking.

Off to The Bridge poor piggies. Keep the Rabbity one close

Very sorry to hear your loss Sad. I wouldn't hold out any hope of finding your other two sadly.

A similar thing happened to another Mner last year losing 2 beloved piggies. I'm sure if she reads this she'll be along to add her support.

RIP Piggies

I'm so sorry to hear this. I've lost two guineas and a rabbit this year (rabbit was killed by something that got into it's completely sealed run at night - there must have been a wee hole or something).

My remaining guinea is currently in the house - he barely makes it out his hutch anyway (he had an ear infection which has left him with problems, and I think he prefers the safety of home) so he might as well be in a large cage inside. Plus I'm worried he'll be lonely outside.

Give your bunny huge hugs from me. I miss having a bunny around. x

Oh OP that's so awful. So sorry to hear about the loss of your pigs.

Bloody urban foxes are an absolute menace.

Thinking of you and your surviving bun.

Just moved the remaining hutch and bunny into the garage (no room for the car in there, too much clutter).

Thank you for your sympathy everyone.

I am really unhappy atm, but your well wishes are heartening.
