messageFoxes - food being left for them
Posted by GC256 March 19, 09:16PM

Has anyone seen the lady laying down fox food (eggs and cat food) every night around the Avondale rise / Copleston Road area?

It smells awful and is attracting foxes who take the eggs, smash them in Gardens and then soil cat food which is being left everywhere. I have asked her to stop doing it but please say so if you are seeing this too - it is attracting massive foxes to the area who are making horrible smelly mess everywhere, destroying gardens and intimidating people on the street.

I wondered why the dribbling great ginger fleabags had stopped trying to pounce all over my run. Nice one!

More grade E trolling. Some people just never learn.

Living in an Urban area It is a privilege to see these beautiful creatures.

I too feed the Foxes. Mostly when they are about late at night.
They wait outside my house for me to home late at night and sometimes follow me up my road
when they know I have food. They like spicy Hot chicken wings. They do not like Spare Ribs.

They are very timid but they seem to recognise me.
They are scared of cats and pose very little threat to your pets.

There is a lot more Domestic Dog Poo around than Fox Poo. Fox poo is a lot smaller.
In Winter Foxes will catch and eat mice. In summer they eat lots of insects like crickets, beetles and caterpillars as well as frogs

Only a quarter of foxes live to be two years old, 12% to three years, 6% to four years, and very few make it beyond six years. Many are killed in road traffic accidents.

People need to be a lot more tolerant to our Foxes.

I love spare ribs. Don't mind if they're pre-eaten, don't worry just leave them on the pavement I'll sort them for ya.

Yeah and the rest. Last year I practically had to repopulate SE22 on my own. I got 99 problems, ungrateful little biters every one of 'em.

How stupid can people be. Next you'll have people going out of their way to feed rats.

Intimidating people on the street - do I really need to explain why I think theyre trying to get a raise from everyone.

Well, it seemed a perfectly normal post to me.

As do their previous posts on here, so I also don't understand your comment"some people never learn."

But maybe I'm just naive.

Since 2015 theyve only engaged in selling and buying on the forum. Then out of nowhere comes a thread about a elderly person feeding wild animals, with the line intimidating people, in reference to a small defenceless animal. I mean, where do I even begin to explain how ridiculously exaggerated and sensationalist this is? When did you last see a small emaciated Fox cornering a person? A very bizarre thread from someone with little posting history outside of the buyer/seller part of the forum. It is quite clearly trolling, and pretty poor form trolling at best.

Lets hope youre never hungry then. People with no empathy make me sick.

It's a FOX!!, which has many diseases.

Why don't you bring one home with you next time you see one then you can feed it everyday whilst your children play with it.

Ridiculous!!

Before you say it, this is just my opinion, which doesn't mean I'm a troll.

Didnt suggest you were a troll. Just a ignorant human being who lacks empathy for other species we share this planet with. Lets not forget, they only come to urban areas because we humans hunted them out of the countryside, and we leave our crap strewn out on the shared spaces we call streets, which is a breeding ground for any hungry animal. Are you suggesting they dont have a right to live like the rest of us do?

And in answer to your first stupid point, we do feed rats actually. Because we create the wasteful environment for them to thrive in.

Im pretty sure the foxes round here did not move here from Surrey and Kent. I grew up in the countryside and never ever saw a live fox.

Thats debatable 😊

I love seeing the foxes and also feed them in my garden. They are a good deal more welcome than some of the people in this area....but not tried them on ribs!

Hear hear Zig-Zag, foxes would be more welcome in my garden than some of the vermin people with pretty distasteful opinions, I come across.

I'm often intimidated by foxes, hanging about on street corners in gangs, smoking, drinking, up to no good ..... I put my head down and walk past quickly, I don't want any trouble 😶🙄😅

Posted by Ruskin March 21, 08:54AM

We have a large male that comes over the fence, more regularly these last few weeks. At first we thought he was looking for another den and because there's no overgrown areas nearby it didn't occur to me he was coming over to us on his recce route. So then I discovered that a bottom shed panel had been ripped away causing a lot of damage to one corner and given the strength needed, I'm pretty sure of the size of animal to do this.

He's a beautiful, healthy animal trying to make it in a challenging urban habitat but I won't be feeding him. Instead I've been going out making a lot of noise to make him unwelcome. I've bodged the shed panel but assume he'll try again and maybe at that point my patience will wear a bit thinner although I have no intention of hurting him - even if I could.

It would seem that Louisa/Loutwo's time spent away from the forum has not aided the bitter, ignorant and twisted views she seems to still hold.

You only joined the forum in Feb 2019 You have 77 posts 73 for the 2 Word games threads.

What knowledge of Louisa/Loutwo's historic postings do you have. ??
Are you qualified to make such comments about her.

Foxy youve possibly uncovered yet another previous forum member, who held a poor opinion of me and is taking this opportunity to goad me. As Sue is trying to do above. I am not willing to feed their trolling. And I advise you not to either.

Yes Lou it did occur to me it was probably a former forum user or even an Alias of a current user.

Not sure I feel much differently about foxes than rats

Oh FFS.

And so it goes on.

(Not referring to you, mikeb)

ETA: I'm sure people reading the thread can come to their own conclusions about who, if anybody, is trolling here.

I thought I would take the opportunity Louisa to respond seeing as you have been so welcoming of my post. Im not sure if you have seen any of the foxes on Copleston Road but they are pretty big and only come out at night. If you have a young family / mum / wife who have encountered one of the foxes at night you might understand that its not sensationalit to say they are quite intimidating. Also, you are welcome to come and clean up the smashed eggs and fox faeces (which smells pretty terrible after what they are fed) in my garden to see what its like every weekend.

Im only flagging something that Im sure doesnt just happen to me and trying to encourage people to politely ask the lady to stop doing it.

P.S. is there anything wrong with buying / selling standard household things through this forum?

messageRe: Foxes - food being left for them
Posted by Sue March 21, 11:30PM

Ignore her. She has already been banned once.

ETA: Sorry I may be mistaken.

Flounced off the forum once.
