Foxes in Middx – Lily and Mates

    We have foxes in Australia – brought in with the rabbits, presumably – and I’ve seen a few on evening walks around the burbs. They are considered a danger to the (dumber) native wildlife. Perhaps the feral cats will keep them in check.

      The feral cats won’t prey on the foxes.
      Quite the opposite actually.

      But, foxes eating feral cats is good news for your native animals who would otherwise be preyed upon by the foxes. 😉

      • Brett_McS

        Yes, judging by the amount of wildlife (rats, mostly) that our – well-fed, domestic – cats bring in, I can imagine that feral cats do a lot of damage. The saddest thing is when they bring in something like this, a feathertail glider:

    • We have Coyotes in Toronto now as well they prey on domestic pets.

        same here on the coast. Three coyotes would never sit and watch a Moggie like that. it would be a snatch and run and more forlorn posters on the telephone poles . It is interesting that Foxes wear the same calculating sly expression that Coyotes have,

    Are you not allowed to shoot them when they are in your backyard ?

    The glass is thwarting the natural hierarchy of the food chain and the look in the cats eyes show it’s gratitude. Good kitty.

    This is what happens when good Englishmen stop riding to the hounds. Those foxes are — well— sly!

    Great photos at the DailyMail, although feeding the urban foxes only makes them accustomed to humans, likely shortening what are already short lifespans.

    Speaking of urban wildlife, here’s a recent video from New Jersey of a family of bears commandeering another family’s pool…..

      Part two and the conclusion of the bear video….


      • So cool!

        • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

          Too bad the kids are too young to fully appreciate the experience.

          I don’t know what their ‘floaties’ cost, but, the experience of watching momma bear and five little ones is priceless.

    • Cool!

      Five cubs? I was told it was a sign of good prehibernation nutrition for a female to carry and deliver three babies but Five? are they not hibernating?are they continuously breeding with close age groups or can bears deliver litters of 5?

      • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

        I’ve seen four cubs, but, never five.
        Some YouTube commenters think she may have ‘adopted’ some of her five cubs.

        According to Wiki, Black Bears have 1-6 cubs, with 2-3 being the typical litter.

        There’s even a video on the Wiki page of another sow with her five cubs.
