Fox in the garden
27 September 2007

A set of photos taken by a County Kildare resident who regularly welcomes foxes in to her garden. The creatures explore the lawn, relax on the patio table and enjoy generous portions of pet food!

Many landowners are happy to see foxes, not only because they are fascinating to watch but due to the fact that they keep down the numbers of so-called pests such as rats, mice and rabbits.

If you would like to share your photos or video footage of foxes, please send them to us at ICABS, PO Box 88, Mullingar, Co Westmeath or email them to Thank you.
