Fox-predator

My Fieldbook of Natural History defines the fox as: “Probably the world’s greatest destroyer of mice.” Certainly a fox can be devastating to an inadequately protected flock as well, but well implemented defensive strategies can keep this valuable predator eating mice rather than poultry. Ellen and I often see foxes on our property, but in thirty years of raising poultry have never lost a single bird to a fox. ©Photo courtesy of http://digitao.co.uk
