My dog went into season awhile back and to have peace in the house (I have a male dog) I put her in the fenced backyard. Well, the other night at dusk I was sitting on the deck just relaxing and I saw what at first I thought was a large dog creeping around just at the edge on my sightline. After a while, I realized it was a fox and took my dog in. Later that evening, just at dusk, I saw him at the fenceline marking.
Since then I've seen him several times and even found a few of his kills-bones, feathers, etc. I don't want to hurt him but I don't want a horny fox hanging around. I'm not worried about either of my dogs safety, they would be more than an even match for a fox.
Please don't make a mockery of this.
