Local farmer phoned me on Sunday afternoon regarding having found a fox den at the side of a silage pit. I went up Sunday evening and shot the vixen and three cubs. On Monday I was speaking to Dean (on here) and he says "they say that if you shoot the vixen and cubs the dog fox goes on the rampage". I laughed and said that this particular farm has no chickens, the lambs are now fairly big and the calves are even bigger, what is the dog fox going to rampage on.
Was back up today, sadly I had forgotten about the farm's two peacocks that are in a fairly secure pen at the back of the farm. Both dead and half eaten.
Maybe there is some truth in the old saying.
