Set out a box trap to try and catch a bobcat that's been causing us some consternation. Instead I found this in the trap at daybreak. Guess I'm getting old and soft because I let the girls talk me into releasing it. I guess a fox isn't really any danger to my goats.

Not yet. But he's spooked our horses a couple of times and has been seen lurking to close to the goat pen for my comfort.

Cool pics, thanks for sharing.

Had a fox with a den in my back yard. I thought it was pretty cool. New neighbors moved in behind me with a chicken coop and a couple months and missing chickens later no more fox.

Don't see many of those in live traps. Try this to avoid skunks and coons and fox, unless you want them too, I've caught more than one cat with a single feather hung in the trap where it could blow around and a little scent, that's it. Curiosity killed the cat.

Fox is no threat, agreed.

A bobcat will stone cold murder some goats. No question.
