    ~~Since local Councils do not provide a fox control service; you will need to source a professional and licensed Pest Control contractor that is capable to take up such a job. Many Council’s claim that if you remove a fox, another will take its place. In a rural setting where one fox will have a mile square territory, this may be true. This is why ‘dumping’ urban foxes out of the town or city would be cruel. However, in an urban environment, due to the fact that many foxes from different parentage live in such close proximity, territorial behaviour is rarely seen in towns and cities. Very few Pest Control companies are prepared to carry out this type of specialist pest control due to Firearms Certification and public opinion.

    When selecting a professional fox control contractor, you will need to ensure that the appointed contractor holds a valid ‘Open’ Firearms Certificate, is CRB checked, holds adequate insurances and is Trading Standards Approved. A typed quotation with method statement should be provided before any decisions are made to proceed. Any doubts should be investigated before authorisation. You can confirm your potential fox controller’s Firearms Certificate by noting their certificate number and checking it with your local Police.

    The trapping of nuisance foxes coming onto school grounds is seen as the most controlled, effective and safest method. Trapped foxes would be dispatched safely on site with the local Police Control Room being informed. Due to animal welfare and disease management; it is not appropriate to ‘relocate’ nuisance foxes from one area to another. It is a misconception that if you move a fox from one area to another, it will simply settle down and live a happy life. Unfortunately, nature is not that kind. ‘Dumped’ foxes in most cases would starve to death, be attacked or killed by territorial foxes, transmit disease, kill endangered species, kill or injure farm livestock or simply be shot by gamekeepers or farmers. Since the ‘dumping’ of foxes like this is clearly inhumane; such action could well be an offence under The Animal Welfare Act 2006 & The Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981.

    These are the reasons why foxes need to be excluded and controlled in schools and educational facilities.
