Sometime it can be trouble :( A fox is being seen way too often and people are scared of it ...I seen it today and its not too healthy looking and it is not afraid of me walking toward me while I was taking its picture ....I was being careful cause we are not sure if it is sick or not it being not afraid is not a good sign

I am going to call our natural resources to see what can be done with this one see if it is sick or not maybe get it moved or??

I wanted to share some pictures of it

This time of year I think it should have more hair than that ...I have an outside dog and she still has her winter coat starting to shed ....this fox might have mange could have rabies or distemper we have to keep a look out on it and warn others in the area that have cats or little dogs ...little pup tied outside is an easy meal if your really hungry little fox...??

It doesn't look well. 

 

I've had a red fox come right through my camp, not expecting anyone to be where I was.  It was pretty bold and said, "WTF you doing in my morning run?"  It did something like air barks.  I was surprised by the sound of whispered barking and turned to see it only a few feet away.  It didn't let me being there stop it.   It's a favorite memory.

WildE, that poor little guy looks in bad shape. I think something is wrong with him. Be careful, and give him a wide birth.

Yes he doesnt look well this picture was taken across the road from a friends house that has a little dog there is a few around this spot so we warned everyone around ...many people have seen him and are talking about him ....but the him might be a her she kept going under some shed buildings across the road that are owned by the rail road we need to let them guys know too cause it was walking close to me I know enough to stay back and my friend had a shovel just encase we went inside the whole time his little dog was barking at it and it didnt care one bit just kept scratching his face on the rail road tie

when it was walking toward me it was walking down the tracks digging in the sand it seen me and didnt care walked toward me into the junk by the buildings ...there is a park for kids close to this area too and this was all about noon mid day out and about in town not very good signs for this little one ....

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.

That's not the case in some places, several yrs ago, when married to wife #3 (lol), her son went to the bus stop which was at the corner of our own yard, and came upon a wounded oppossum.  It had apparently been hit by a car during the night, and was laying there wounded until bothered.  It started making a horrible hissing, moaning weird sound, so my ex called the police.  They came out and said nope, call the humane society.  The humane society came out and said nope.  Finally, she paid some old man with a pickup truck and a big leather glove $5 to get it gone.  Moral to this story?  lol

If it's not intimidated by humans, I would say rabies, and with it's tail looking like that, I would say mange......good luck with that.

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 :)

I would think that any full grown cat would hold its own in a gato a zorro confrontation with that one.

I am extrememly sorry for saying this, but I have to do it.

Yall that know me know I am an outdoorsman.

There is something wrong with that fox for sure, and if nobody is going to come and get it.

Well I think you know where I'm going with this... right?

If cats are missing and it is not scared of people, than it is only a matter of time before something worse happens.

Is it worth it to wait for that time before something is done?

Again I'm sorry that is just my .22 bits

Catch it in a salmon landing net and take it to a good vet's.  We have a great animal rescue lady in our area.  I have taken injured birds, from robins to red tails, to her.  She is up to save any that can be saved, and put down humanely, any that can't. 

 

Too bad there's not one like her everywhere.

 

Anyone within 100 miles of Astoria, OR, if you have a situation like this, PM me and I'll tell you where to call.

Looks like mange to me. Plus even a perfectly healthy fox wants an easier meal than a full grown cat (wow, pun NOT intended).

 

I think it needs a lot of love or a quick end.

Well i had a long post then lost my connection,

 

But it had to do with how this government is more interested in giving

billions to NASA (for space exploration) when people and fellow mammals are suffering

from diseases like mange not to mention the ones effecting man like the ones in Africa

river blindness (the suicide disease) malaria, etc.

 

No let's see if there's life on other planets!

The original source for this appears at the link at the end (cat pun intended this time)

 

"CAT Scans

A space program needs a pretty good digital image analysis to locate and measure objects. Digital imaging is the computer processed numerical representation of physical images. The JPL played a lead role in developing this technology. This has proven incredibly useful in a variety of medical technologies, like CAT scanners, radiography and microscopy."

well that is fine and well pasted info.

 

All i am saying is we should be more concerned with the health of man and animals on 

this planet.

 

The wasted time and money by NASA could have gone to end pain and suffering on

this planet.

Not a hijack cat just a discusion about wildlife and how pitiful we handle this suffering.

Let's fix this planet and end suffering here before we satisfy our curiosity about outerspace. 

 

I did'nt have to read your links to know that NASA is just a money pit and useless waste of tax money.

Me sorry too  :blush:

I just get worked up about these things.

 

I have seen so much suffering in man and animals that could 

be avoided if we just cared about our fellow inhabitants of OUR planet.

 

One more thing and i will not debate it any further.

There is no future in going into outerspace.

NASA knows that but they have a BIG payrole.

 

They lie and give us fake or enhanced pics of planets.

My words will ring true someday.
