Urban Fox, Glasgow

Urban Fox, Glasgow, Scotland

This evening, I am posting images, taken this afternoon, of one of a colony of foxes which are based in the locality.  When hungry they just appear on our lawn and wait very patiently until food is offered.  Foxes living in urban and suburban locations are now very common in Britain.

Last year our group had a litter of between four and six which were quite cute as they bounced around and played with each other.

The adult fox shown in the images has a persistently runny eye, a condition which seems to get neither worse nor better over the years. He/she seems to survive quite satisfactorily. Read more on Urban Fox…

This evening, I have chosen a very unusual if somewhat bizarre topic of animals with missing tails.

The garden (back yard) of my property is increasingly becoming a wildlife reserve with squirrels, foxes, hedgehogs and many varieties of birds.

In recent time we have noticed a very strange phenomenon as manifested in animals without tails. We have recently become aware of a grey squirrel without a key appendage and last year we had a young fox with similar disfigurement. Why these deformities have occurred in such a compact area is a complete mystery. The animals seem otherwise to be in good health. Read more on Deformed Wild Animals…
