  • To discourage foxes from coming to your property you should:

    * Secure food waste bins and prevent waste from over flowing onto the ground.

    * Ensure pets are well secured e.g rabbits, chicken, guinea pigs etc.

    * Refrain from deliberately feeding them (this includes neighbours).

    * Refrain from interacting and trying to tame foxes.

    If a fox issues persists, you should seek professional advice, but you must NOT:

    * Use gassing or poisoning

    * Block or destroy a fox earth (hole) if occupied

    * Do anything that may cause serious injury or suffering to the fox (es)

    * Use self locking snares

    * Use a bow, crossbow or air rifle against the fox (es).
