Contact the department of wildlife, they may pick up said fox, nurture it to health and re-introduce it elsewhere. If it is too sick and beyond help, they will have it put down humanely.
I called today .... they said that there hasnt been a case of rabies in 10 years so its probably not that ...she said defiantly mange if it has no fur
she also said that they do not come and get animals it is up to the municipality to do something about it....
...she said if it is not afraid of people to scare it by making loud noises so eventually it will become scared of people
...talked to the town people that would be responsible (as of yet we still have no dog catcher in the area no bylaw officer either) so they said they do not have to do anything about it either
so they are just passing the buck back and forth ...but I live in an area that has no natural resources we have to call the nearest one and there is 3 nearest ones so I will call the other 2 tomrow
last night this fox came nose to nose with a little dog in the area and the owner managed to scare it away but she also told me that a few cats are missing in the area as well ....its hard keeping my cats inside but thats what we have to do
we were told that maybe a trapper in the area can come and trap it ....?? now how do we find one of those cause it is against the law to fire a gun in town ..??
There is also a group of ladies that trap ferial cats and get them fixed and release them get their shots and such as well I was thinking about calling them cause they have the traps but they might not wanna deal with a fox but you never know they are cat lovers and they might not want any more cats going missing ??? all worth the effort to find out that is for sure
thanks all for your help dealing with sick wild animals is hard I can use all the ideas I can get :)
