Just a thought as I get a bit bored with the idea that foxes are being released all over the countryside. Would the RSPCA have to respond to a freedom for information request regarding the number of foxes they capture and/or treat in a year?
They way people talk about released foxes you get the impression it must be into the thousands and I find that pill a bit hard to swallow!!
I DO ACCEPT that some are released as I have seen pictures of animals that have clearly had surgery. However I am sure many "recovered" mangy foxes are not. Hairloss or loss of condition can be for a large number of reasons, many of which we are ignorant to.
Anyway I just wondered if we could force the RSPCA hand a bit as they are a charity or does the freedom of information only apply to government?
ps I am not having a go Paddy as for 1 thing I know that peoples experiences with foxes varies enormously in different areas of the country
