TasCowboy 391525 2 Foxes in Tasmania either
Foxes in Tasmania
I snapped this one today, just south of Perth (Tasmania).

Seems someone is having a bit of fun with the government's policy on fox eradication in the state (we havent traditionally had foxes here but some have been found over the past few years).

Brought a :-) to my face anyway.

Re: Foxes in Tasmania
Have "ALLEGEDLY" been a few caught here but no one I know seems to have seen a live one out in the bush or the paddocks.

I would think from what I have been told that at lambing time they would be around (if they were here). Alot of taxpayers money has been wasted on baiting, employing people to look for them (fox free task force on the big sign) etc without any notable success.

Am a bit of a sceptic I am afraid, as to whether or not they are here in Tassie. :-P

Re: Foxes in Tasmania
a few things to look for are:

holes around november, december that appear well used often with a 5 m ring of flattened grass here u might also see a lamb leg or other animal bits a good sign of an active nest of cubs
or dung that looks a bit like cats but is often on a rock or bush or dirt hill as they mark their territory this way.
mainly seen at night in car/ute lights.

Re: Foxes in Tasmania
they are very thick here too we allow for up to 30 lambs per year taken by them.
we too rarely see them mainly around mating time in august but we can see evidence of them

Here we havent really seen evidence of them or actual foxes, so who knows?
