How To Catch Your Urban Fox

Recommended Posts

A nice video of urban fox life. To be honest I think that making that video was your ultimate goal. You have made it and proved that you could trap the foxes any time you like, so your happy. One thing I will agree with though, is unless you have a humane method of despatch, do not trap them.

 

As always just my opinion.

You got it pretty much right. Unless I can find a mate with a .22, I will find a "reputable wildlife rescue group" and do a relocation.

It's not illegal to relocate foxes but unless you take them miles and miles away, they'll be back.

you need the land owners permission, to release them that won't happens with my farmers,

 

Whatt about Hampstead Heath or Wimbledon Common? Would these be OK?

Good video I catch a few in london relocation is a no no instead of getting a group to relocate why not get someone to despatch as for getting them used to the trap I wouldn't bother in town as they are so used to people the smell don't matter as for bait I use cat food in a plastic bag hang it from the inside of your trap usually catch by the 3rd day no pre bait don't trap unless you are willing to do the dirty work as well

Can't seem to edit above post to add all taken of the net.

I have 2 mates that work as pest controllers and need to know today's laws.

I agree it's frowned upon to release foxes, but there isn't a law against it or the rspca would be in a world of shit as they do it all the time.

 

Taken off the net doesn't mean it's law. If it is, I'd be very interested to know which specific law.

 

Nor being argumentative. i'm just interested. :thumbs:

Nope.It just says you shouldn't transport them or relocate them as it causes stress. Same as it says you shouldn't use firearms in urban areas, when you clearly can and I have many times. It's not on the "must" and "must not" section. There's no law there, just suggestions.

 

As I say, I'm still sure there is no legislation as such against releasing foxes.

Anti what?

Let me clarify; I grew up in a rural area doing lots of hunting,fishing, trapping etc so I'm not a squeamish tree-hugger. I'm not sure if you are aware of just how much of a problem these urban foxes are.
