Red Fox in Town ?


Recommended Posts

My daughter send this photo taken where she is staying with her mother in St.Catharines . This fence is just across the road from Giant Tiger on Scott St., a very busy area with houses and businesses (beer store). It has been seen before in the area . I live  close to open fields , hydro lines and some bush but never see foxes or yotes here . The fox there must have a good food supply , maybe getting some food from G.T. ?

There's a photo of a coyote with a small dead dog in it's jaws ,taken at NOTL this morning . People are being advised to have a "stick" on hand to ward off an attacking yote . I don't think a stick will deter a yote , better make it a baseball bat , ect . or some sort of spray .

Rumours of coyote in Grantham/Facer area according to neighbor who walks their small dog around the big block there.

I was told the yotes are feeding on the squirrels in the hoods . Send those yotes here ! They might also like to try cat burgers !

There was an Army surplus store in St Catharines on St Paul that sold "dog spray" on a keychain. It's been a while since I lived in the city and I barely go there now so I don't know if that store still exists. I'm sure you can find that spray in other stores though. A girl I used to work with carried it.

Many years ago there was "Jacks Army & Navy" store on St. Paul St. downtown . We bought 'haversacks' and all kinds of stuff . I still have the 10 x 50 Carl Wetzlar binoculars I bought there , made in Japan with very good lenses . His shop was near James St. at about 241 St. Paul .

 

There are some good wasp sprays that can be detrimental to the eyes and many other sprays that are not kind to our eyes, like vinegar .

Thats got to be the one I'm thinking of... It was near the train station end of St Paul

Jack's army surplus store was near James St. on the left going east to Queenston  St. and I believe he moved to the Falls .

The one on St.Paul West is a tiny little shop that isn't always open . It's near Churchill St. and Lloyd St. opposite the train station .It may be the old Gamble Robinson warehouse where we would get some bananas they tossed out , and a machine shop next door where we got our lead they threw out to make sinkers in our clay molds , very crude but they did sink ! This would be about 1956 when I was 13 .
