Nice one chaps and a nicer lot of replies than i'm getting for a terrier post:laugh:,the lads had a grand day and it was the keepers son who drove the gun bus and did a lovely drinks and lunch and was host as such for the day and a cracking young lad with a whole life of keepering ahead of him as his dad is a self employed keeper and the lad will in time take it all over from him.Glad to say the guns had a whip round for him and he did ok and we didn't cover the whole estate and were out again in a couple of weeks to do the other half of it as such as there's plenty of the smaller woods we didn't do and during the day it was the smaller woods that held the greater number of squirrels,so watch this space and thanks again for the pleasant replies...:victory:

Cracking job ,How do you reckon the munty lost a limb fox  wire or hit by a vehicle?

It was a back limb and just below her knee joint (her back left hand leg,you can just make it out on the pic)and it was just about healed,a few of us had a chat about it after the drive of the woods and we all thought a car had done it rather than a wire as our keeper don't run wires and the surrounding keepers don't either.Both that fox and that muntjac were done favours and it's by the grace of god we've had a mild winter or they'd have both died very slow cruel deaths if it were cold and snowy..

The mange has thankfully missed our area but Oxford and surrounding counties had it bad this year .

You would think with the milder weather ,foxes wouldn’t be going to ground and catching it from previous tenant .Stress is a big factor I’m told .Horrible fate and better out the way .👍🏻

Demadectic mange (spelling ?) is caused by stress,it's the parasite all dogs have but their own immune system keeps it in check,it's when stress causes and unbalance in that immune system the parasites numbers increase and it turns into mange.

Sarcoptic mange is a straight parasite and can be caught by any dog or fox or even human as it's scabies in humans..
