A fox is taking a worrying interest in our new puppy, probably because of his musky odours. We have a wire pen and it's pretty secure, but a determined fox could get in. Thing is he wouldn't find it so easy to get out and if panicked could make shit of the dogs and the cat.
Any advice on dettering it? I plan to put more lighting out in the pen and maybe metal bird deterrent spikes along the top of the fences.
What kind of foxes do you have round you? The foxes I'm used to would be hard put to fight a middling sized cat. They'd take a chicken, but if there was a duck with a shitty attitude I don't see it working out for the fox.
Is the puppy tiny? Can't the little chap sleep on your feet? That's on of the main points of having a puppy I thought.
