This red fox is doing what wild foxes are supposed to do - catch their own food. In this Guardian file photo a fox pounces on a field mouse that it wasted no time in eating once it dug it out from its burrow. Charlottetown city council said it is geting complaints about some residents feeding the animals.
Editor: Your editorial on feeding foxes in today’s Guardian (“Council targets friendly red fox”) is dripping with sarcasm on the council’s plan to enforce what wildlife experts have been telling us for years — stop feeding the foxes.
Sarcasm is good — in its place, but “live trapping vagrant robins”? A bit much, really. And your column seems to indicate you know more about wildlife than the experts do. Sorry, but I think you’re wrong in this case. They know what they’re talking about. That’s why we call them experts.
I would suggest you save sarcastic comments for the large number of targets we have here on the Island, namely politicians.
