A fox in the chicken house?

Since my neighbors are now raising chickens, and because foxes have been reported around the greenway--a natural question arises.   "Will the fox eat my chickens?"


I found a wonderfully factual and readable article about urban foxes here. It talks about fox biology, control, and how to keep your chickens safe.

And some of my neighbors talk about problem animals--trapping and releasing them as a "humane solution." But it's neither humane, nor a solution.  Find out more here.
