I stumbled on this dead male fox in the drain on my drive entrance. When going the 19 ks to town I have seen foxes on the road but only on the outer regions from Mullumbimby. Never before have I sighted a fox here.
Now our region is classified in drought, the fact I have seen a fox, totally dead, here is probably a result of a few factors. Urban development, more dogs roaming, possible poisoning with 1080, water sources drying up and the remaining wild life being pushed further inland.
Lots more traffic on the roads.
The ferals follow the food.
Busy week, log splitter coming in Saturday to clear the demountable site.
