Here is our ministry of natural resources and forestry page about sick or injures animals
It would be different if we were out of town it would have been taken care of already ....
My hubby just reminded me we have a trapper that lives close to me its worth a visit to talk to him in the morning ...we cannot shoot a gun in town without a big fine and not too many people have a gun in town anyway
and I know how serious this can be it came nose to nose with a little dog yesterday I am worried about the little dogs on a chain that are no bigger than a small cat
but there is bigger problems cause this is very very close to a park for kids to play in this fox not being afraid of people it can easily harrass the kids in the park and many adults leave the children alone in the park ...worst case something happens to a kid and thats not good
there is people that live with woods in behind them in this area and I am sure if they get the chance to shoot it with the woods in the back ground that they would to protect their animals cause in Canada you can shoot an animal if they are endangering your animals or family property etc...
Hahaha now I am getting somewhere why didnt the lady on the phone tell me about this web site and the animal rescue centers ?? there is a special at risk for rabies animals care centers nothing very close to us but maybe they will travel to help?? give a few of these people a call in the morning as well :)
Ya the only one close to me does not deal with animals that can carry rabies but I will call them first and ask them which one to call cause the others are over an hour away maybe they will know which ones that will travel ...
I am not giving up till I hear answers and find a solution I do not wanna see a friends dog get hurt or someones kid
I love all animals and am usually the first one out there tending to it but this one I know I have to keep my distance I do not trust it too sick but healthy enough to run at you and is not scared away possibly living in town this thing is after easy meals
One thing to mention some people leave say cat food out side I used to to feed the strays or your own cat that decided to stay outside well this is bad you attract other animals besides the stray cat
Compost must only contain veggie material and if possible have a lid be in a bucket etc to keep animals out
Never dump meat grease and i will leave it at any wheat / grains especially ones that have a meat taste or a sauce all this can be food for animals like our little fox and well you are attracting the sick animals that are after the easiest snack out there
oh one more recycling cans that have a taste still left in them are easily licked out my mom has a coyote that makes its rounds to everyones compost and recycling buckets but she likes in the woods you have wild life every where ;)
I told my Grandma about this fox she said no hair that be a funny looking tail on that fox she said mange for sure ..she knows me well and says to stay away but make all the calls I need to make this little one shouldnt be suffering she says .....
I let her know I am a bush girl I know enough to give animals their space living in the deep woods where a tiny town is carved out of nearest neighbor couldnt be seen there when I was a kid but more and more people are buying land there but it is still a tiny town blink and miss it kinda town more woods around than town ;) ....animals in town can be hard to deal with we do not want any stray bullets flying around or for one to hit a rail road tie or metal rail and bounce off and hit a ...that be just as bad as ignoring this fox....but I cannot stop any of these red necks either they know there is a sick fox you think rabies right away and some do not wanna take the chance .....
I hope one of these centers will come get it and check for babies too its going under a shed so you never know?? I just cannot believe the gov .... municipality and the natural resources would not help shake my head at least I know how to look for the web site myself get more help on the web then the phone ;)
Thanks for all your help people I will keep you updated after making more calls tomrow :)
