Jeremy Clark is complaining that a fox killed 34 of his prized hens. I hope he is not blaming the fox. He should blame himself for not building a coop which protects his hens properly. He is smart enough to realise this. And I feel sure that he has done something about it. And don’t think foxes are being cruel if they kill 34 hens when they can’t eat them all. They are simply doing what they need to do to survive. Foxes are unjustifiably reviled by a lot of people. These people are cruel to foxes. Live and let live and lets live in harmony with them. It is just plain ignorance if people want to harm foxes. And foxhunting is barbaricly ridiculous.
