Foxes "Terrorising" N.F.


Recommended Posts

In the Standard today ....foxes terrorising a neighbourhood . People want them removed and the Humane Society hasn't the permit to relocate them & the mayor says live with them .   The goverment is determined to keep increasing the population in Niagara , etc., building more housing in the countryside . It's all about money as usual . Many people are leaving big cities like T.O. & will gladly pay cash for a million dollar home "in the country" . Animals have no where to go when they cut down the trees and the government does not do " environment preservation" The animals will disappear as we keep encroaching on their previous territory . I would rather see them build hundreds of high rise apartments , replacing the old decrepit buildings in cities ....at a reasonable affordable price . Beware of skunks , many have rabies now.

My neighbourhood has had foxes in it for years and I live in the city (Stoney Creek). I’ve witnessed multiple litters now. They have made homes under porches, sheds etc. I don’t have a problem with them but others do….people with dogs/cats etc. Last summer I peeled someone’s cat out of the mouth of a fox 😳.  I see a fox pretty much daily here and up until about 2020 I had never saw one around. Here’s one from this March staring at my daughter waving to it through the winter.

Could be the same onesFK. Foxes however do have a short lifespan 4ish years I believe. I want to say the ones I always see are the ones from previous years as well.

We have a young fox in our neighbourhood.  Saw it trotting down sidewalk twice in a week during the day.

i like seeing them around because I know there won’t be any mice around with the fox present.

People need to learn that cats are INDOOR pets, and should NOT BE LET OUTSIDE because they kill for fun, and kill far more small birds and animals than a fox!

We have & had some large dogs in the hood and they killed a few cats , including my beautiful rotti who killed one in a few seconds & left it in my veggie garden . We licence our dogs , walk them on a leash while cats roam free to kill the birds & get into garbage .  Maybe a big firecracker might persuade the cats to stay home .....
