At this time the flemish government is reconsidering the strict rules on foxhunt in Flanders (no hunting during the time they have cubs, ban on the use of poison, traps, srrings and digging out dens), their goal is to allow more foxes to be killed by hunters, by more means :( PLEASE HELP and sign the petition AGAINST the hunt on foxes in Belgium.

So... Foxes are to nice to be hunted... they say, foxes steal chicken and such. They sure do, as there not enough prey-animals left in the fields.

And about those 10 wolfs in Germany - why hunting them down? If you want them not getting to close to settlements, just disallow hunters in their territory...

Yeah, here in Germany, the hunting lobby is very powerful and hunters are allowed to hunt foxes at any time. There is only a rule not to kill vixens if they have cubs, but hunters cannot differentiate between male and female foxes anyways and the cubs themselves are not protected. All that sucks big time. Anti-hunting-activists including my friend Shadowfox started an initiative to urge lawmakers to protect foxes during spring and summer time. Wish them luck.

I live on a farm in Norfolk, Uk. We have alot of fox attacks against the hens we keep. But i would say that never should the poor things be harmed. Its wrong and unfair as they are just trying to do what comes natural. I would hope that they would be given more protection anywhere and that farms should do more to protect their own birds and not just take the easier path of shooting them.

And whats more, Worse then fox attacks when it comes to keeping hens, Its people. Nasty people who steal your prize winning stock.
