just dont have a clue .i had to set a fox trap in a garden in Sutton to catch a vixen she has 4 cubs aswell .now the local wildlife officer .told the client to get me to catch the vixen then to dispatch her and then they would return and catch the cub's for relocation ??? [wildlife animal abandonment act 1961 amended 2006 remains the same its illegal ] i have explained this to the client it is not illegal if they release them in the same area which in turn they will return ?? if they are to be re released in the country could she ask them at what age they are to be released and who will teach them to hunt and KILL and fend for them selfs urban foxes living in the countryside a no no .
now this has got me thinking wildlife centres who do take in many fox cubs this time each year do re release and do relocate them as seen on TV . but as a wild animal do they feed them live mice rats squirrels rabbits pheasant chicken .as thats what they will be hunting in the wild
and how do they prepare them for this
