    Last night, there was a thump at the front door....



    ..opened the door and there's a young Fox cub staring back at me from the path.

    Bold as you like he walks up the garden and retrieves the black furry/fluffy/feathery bundle he'd been chasing for tea.

    Then strolls off, cool as you like.

    Foxes RAWK.

    Cool. Nearly had a nasty accident on my way home last night. Driving along on a nice country road next thing I see 4 bright eyes in the middle of the road. What was it but an ikkle dear and her ikkle fawn. Would they move off the road? Would they fuck! Very cute though. Aw!

    /hijacks thread

    Was about, oh, 6 years ago, xmas. For a change we opted to have venison instead of turkey. So we sit down at about 2 ish, turn on TV, and up pops Bambi. Was rather funny was that.

    My friend had a fox die in his arms, probably one of the saddest moments that year.

    We get foxes in our garden. They're ace! Mostly because they scare off the bastard cats!

    The howl they do though is pants stainingly terrifying though. Sounds a like a woman screaming, really shits me up when it awakens me.

    Mjeees... Foxes are indeed cool. Watching those English cunts hunt them down, and then have a cuppa while 20 bloodthirsty dogs tear the fox to pieces, REALLY gets to me. "But old chap - its a sport, nay, a tradition!"

    Cunts, I says...

    Now Toff-hunting, that's a sport I could really get into.

    EDIT: Not meaning you Spin, just the rectal probes that find fox hunting amusing.

    I used to see em loads at my mum & dad's down in the Surrey suburbs, but since moving up north I've not seen a single one - & it's loads greener up here. Last Xmas I was down there & having just got in from the pub had a look out of a front window. A fox casually strolled across the entrance to the drive, had a look in & sauntered off again. Cool! I'd forgotten how ace they were!

    We have foxes up here in Cumbria, too. They are, indeed, fantastic.

    We also have red squirrels \o/

    Red Squirrels?

    Always wanted to see one for real.

    Grey ones up Regents Park are right agressive. Straight out of the Harvest Crunch Bar adverts they are.

    Tons of them where I live. Our estate is built in a woodlands area. I have even seen them in my back garden trying to get nuts from the bird feeders. Cute little things.

    I'm sure I've seen red squirrels in this country, but I can't remember where. Been on a few camping holidays to France when I was younger & there were loads of them there. Damn those mean bully grey squirrels!

    When people say thing like that I get a little scared. I go to Regents Park quite a lot, maybe we have looked at each other and not known it?

    They're great little buggers.

    Closest was about two weeks ago on a country drive with my father-in-law. He spotted it on the road and braked hard, it got out of our way and jumped onto a tree just beside the car which happened to be almost right opposite my window. Can't have been further than two feet away, I could almost see it's tiny heart beating. Then, ater maybe 10 seconds, scampered onto the stone wall and we watched it jump from log to stone to tree.

    You must live in a beautiful suburb if you have foxes scurrying about.

    I've never seen a fox in real life, I think they're lovely though. I've seen lots of red squirrels in the nearby parks though, they're lovely, much nicer in real life than in photos or on telly. There's also lots of grey squirrels which aren't that nice at all, but the cutest thing of all is hedgehogs which are the sweetest little bastards you ever say. Gorgeous little faces, they have.

    Funniest thing?

    Dog attacking a hedgehog.

    The dogs, they just don't work it out to they. My old dog used to go mental at hedgehogs and you'd find these holes in the garden where she was trying to "dig around the prickles".

    Stupid dog, they go all the way around.

    i'd love to see a red squirrel too, i thought they were going extinct in europe? But maybe not, if you guys see them all the time. I've only seen a short glimpse of foxes. They're definitely cool though, after many readings of 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' as a child. Incidentally, my mum is scared of hedgehogs. Not quite sure why.

    edit - spelling

    Hedgehogs are cool. When they run they look like remote control cars since they move quickly but you can't see their feet - almost like they're on wheels.

    Our garden at home has a resident grey squirrel, hedgehog, bat, toad, mouse, and about 50 newts. It's like a wildlife film every time you go outside, it's quality.

    I was watching the squirrel jumping about in the snow one Christmas and it ran across the frozen pond but went through a crack into the water. There was a pause of about two seconds and it shot vertically out of the hole and sprinted off into a nearby tree, soaking wet. It was about half the size and it's tail was the thickness of a pencil. The bats are my favourites though...
