Well, this morning I went out to check the fox trap alongside the chicken coop. It must've worked! The door was sprung, the ground under the cage was all torn up, the cage was really muddy now, and our dog's nose was going like a hoover vacuum cleaner all around it. But, NOTHING in it! After checking out the trap, I see that the two little pieces of bent metal acting as hindges for the trap door were completely torn off, and the trap door was just flapping back and forth! Wow, they were bent until the door just came off the cage! BIG FOX!!! :woot:
I'll fix the door "Hindges" with some heavy guage S.S. wire, completely wrapping it around the top of the door and the top of the cage.
And then try again tonite... :rambo2:

I'll give him to you, if you want him. :D :D :D :D
My wife wanted to buy the "Live trap", so once I get this over-grown fur-ball, I'm going to show it to my wife and ask her "Heres your fox, what are you going to do with it" :devil:

I have a bandit getting my chickens also but mine is a raccoon. I set a trap last night and baited it with cat food but no takers this morning. Bugger got the nicest rooster that I have ever had.

I hear that... yeah, we have coons too, a mightly big GranDaddy that wieghs about 40 lbs, and a bunch of his siblings. I am now wondering if he got into the fox trap before the foxes. He is strong enough to tear the door off my car, let alone the fox trap door :woot:

We have a fox den right in my backyard. I didn't know that when we first moved here -- until my cat came down the hill with one on it's back!! :shock: What a sound that fox made! Sounds like a woman getting murdered ... a scream that makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck! It's for that reason that I never clip my cat's claws -- they're like needles.

I had to chase the thing away -- it kept coming back after the cat. No fear of me at that point. My cat went down into his house exploring -- fox didn't like that! :lol: Especially with the little ones down there.


BTW, that pic of the ATV was fake: if the axle really did split in 2, that one there was waaaay to short! :lol: Those are solid one-piece axles on that machine. No chance in hell of it breaking like that. It would have bent into a pretzel first -- or it would have broke on the ends near the hubs. The part that rides in the bearing carrier (where the pic shows it broke) is the thickest & strongest part. 8-)

I just got the Fox trap fixed, and back in place in front of the chicken coop. This time, I installed our old "Baby-monitor" out in the chicken coop, so when the trap gets sprung, I'm gonna hear it this time :x

The Foxes are circling the cage, wondering what tasty treat this is. :nana: The cat is absolutely going crazy, bouncing from wall to wall in the cage. Howling like a mountain lion. Not a local cat, for sure! Durn!

I trapped one like that a few years ago. Took the wild cat in the trap to the local animal control shelter. They put the cat trap and all in the vacuum pump system. They gave the empty trap back to me in about 10 minutes.

PS.... It appears to me a couple of these pics are setup. The horse and the deer, for example.

Deer pic is real. It was a friend of a friend! My wife's Camry was totalled a few years back by a deer in a similar fashion. The doe ended up in the passengers seat after tearing the roof of the car back about 10"
