I don't mind foxy woxy's
They certainly don't scare me - I fink dey are cute and cuddly and shootable if they eat chickens
That way, you get chook and fox for dinner
Fox on the Run was by Manfred Mann, released by RCA.
It was the 60's as well....
Saddened to hear they had gun's for wolves Fell as they don't attack humans unless we attack then first. But on a lighter note know why that Badger didn't run off Wilkie. They are well hard and I wouldn't advise anyone to try & play with them.
PO if you start beating things with stick you will go across my knee young lady.

The rifles were to make a bang and scare 'em. There were supposed to be bears in the area as well, so I guess they felt justified.
I did the Glacier Point race in Yosemite afew winters ago. At one point I was being tracked by a mountain lion. I never saw it - just heard it and saw the tracks crossing ahead of me.
On a 'cute' note-
Was with a school trip in Dorset last month and we were followed for over a mile by a kitten ( ahhh!) Course the kids were besotted and wouldnt leave it alone and it just wouldnt go away. On arriving at a Coutry Park we handed it over to the wardens ( we also had 2 dogs with us- bit dopey; they were both greyhounds and didnt see it!) The wardens had seen it before at the entrance to the park and said they would take it back.
Sure enough - about 3 hours later on our way back it spotted us again heading home.
We told the kids to leg it & luckily no one decided to take it home.
On another pointless note - my mate has badgers in his garden and would love to get rid of them ( you arent allowed to). When the badgers move off for their vacaton the foxes move in and make even more of a mess. Its a mystery why they chose his garden - his wife hates animal life; they are in the middle of a housing estate and their garden isnt that big. Reckon they do it just to annoy her. Said they should get Bill Oddie in and charge a fortune!
