Well, my son was out a couple of nights ago waiting for 'his' fox, when he heard a shot fired a few gardens away. The fox hasn't been seen since, and according to the neighbourhood reports, he was shot! Not sure exactly who shot him...... but I anticipated this..... it was only a matter of time.

I have shot a fox in the past, so I can't be a hypocrite, and yet to be honest, I'm disappointed and a bit peeved! - I had hoped to progress and experiment with his rat hunting skills..........

Keith.
