History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.
That sounds like foxes treated by vets then released on your land when they are fit again. This is of course totally illegal to do this. Try to get proof that this is being done there used to be £2000 up for grabs for anyone who could provide solid proof of this being done.

So you get the 'Do Gooders' up north as well? We have quite a few down here also! There is a 'Charity' lest than 5 miles from my home that regularly 'rescues' Foxes and releases them, some very local to me! You can tell them apart from the truly wild ones as they quite often sit there and let you get your rifle out, load it and shoot them!
I'm not saying they are misguided, but i copied this from their website. 'Every year we care for all manner of casualties including the tiniest of mice' Words fail me!
They also regularly chase local hunts causing all manner of trouble and the Police won't touch them, instead they ask the Hunt and their supporters to move on as it is easier and less trouble to do so...........
Keep on knocking them over!
I shot one this March that had been casterated ( dont think it had caught its balls on a barbed wire fence so must have been released after a visit to the vets)
Was on a shoot last season, a white van pulled up on the road next to the gate. Next thing 3 foxes from the back of the van into the field 2 never made it past the guns that had just lined out the other 1 got away but 7 or 8 shots at it I don't think it got away uninjured. The bloke then had the cheek to shout abuse before realising the error of his ways and making off in haste
In the past year I removed one with a front leg missing, with very very fresh stitches evidence and anther part grown hair on the side again with the scars of stitches.
The last two years evidence of mange in foxes, been on the ground for more years than I care to remember, had never had mange until last year. Someone is shifting foxes around and not telling
