Bread of Heaven
Photo: Rev David Long (Konica Minolta Dynax 7D)
they a pest.
That's the sort of garden I like.............not too much grass to mow
The body of Christ.
Poor creature. A much maligned animal....
i won't be eating here again
Lovely thick tail to help keep it warm as it curls up on the ground.
I pulled the body of a freshly killed fox off the main road a couple of years ago and they really do smell strongly. A lovely animal though and as Helen states, much maligned.
Not sure how to spell it, but it looks like it's got rabbies.
It's one of Gods creatures...and the poor thing looks like it's starving.
awe poor thing. looks hungry and sad, pity ya cant them in to look after
I think it was starving - this was taken at 9.15 in the morning, so it was taking a risk to be out and about at that hour. Brian has spared you the other shot I sent, of the other side of its head, showing the signs of either a fight or an argument with a car. After eating a few bits of bread it went off to the graveyard behind, but couldn't jump the wall at first, and went off to leap it at a lower point, so it was obviously weakened by its trauma. It was also pouring with rain, which adds to its dishevelled appearance.
Aww poor little mite it looks starving!!
Some comments on this pic amaze me..
where are you coming from ? Have you no pity, I was going to say compassion..... but wonder if you understand the meaning of the word.... for an injured creature.
Shame on you. What a world we live in.
Hey Foxy,did you pee on a gravestone a few weeks ago?
Helen, I couldn't agree more. Thank you, Rev. Long, for this picture and for your obvious caring for the animal.
Helen and Ellen..fOXES are a pest, they cause alot of distruction and damage, ask any farmer.
People would change their minds if they understood these animals or work on a farm for a living.
bla bla bla some folk need to get a life . good pic rev
We see foxes,badgers, moles etc as pests because they don't behave as we want them to behave....I'm no townie either & here where I live people who drive cars kill rabbits, pheasants, partridges...all manner of wildlife & don't give a jot. We can kill them but they must not kill in return. Some years ago a fox killed & hid 5 Aylesbury duck of ours, I was cross ( more like mad ) but I expect she had cubs to fee & in her eyes she was doing no wrong....anyway the pic the Rev Long showed was an injured creature which I still say deserves some pity & this is my final comment on the matter.
Helen go an peel some spuds
Good for you Helen,and ignore the insults...some people have no souls.
Here we go...... wonder if this is the same fox that pee'd on the grave the other week?!?!?!
The dark hind quarters and black legs on this fox are very distinctive, and unusual. We had seen him before... but not in the graveyard.... I'm happy to report that he was back foraging in the garden early this morning, looking fitter than in this pic.
As Helen says - we regard them as pests because they do not behave as we want them to.
Man is the biggest pest on this planet.
I'm fully aware of what they do and kill, as my in laws are farmers. It's nature.
the is no use for foxes. foxes just like rats, a pest and nusence
