yes they eat our garden - or at least snip off the plants we plant !!! most new plants are surrounded by baboo surrounds - a few plastic to stop hares but dont always have enough ! we dont get wild pigs here - there is local licenced to kill wild pigs and deer - often see deer on the road to work - back of Naragba / morayfled area and if I come down the fire road from Mt Mee lots of wild deer and wild animals around !

Are the hares eating your garden had around here before became built up even had pigs that had escaped from the abattoir i think they are shooting the deer here  because they applied to use silencers and was refused.

Jeff dont know what the council does - do know they trap and bait wild dogs - we dont keep sheep here for that reason ! know they wont do anything about hares as they arent sen as a problem to the majority - what happens when you live in the urban fringes -  the city folk out number the rural ones ...

Do they have any trapping of foxes in your area if they break through wire would think not that hard to trap.

wishful thinking on my part an edit button would be great - wish the fox would get the hares though now that would be even better

Beautiful chickens and rooster.  I'm assuming you meant the fox got the ducks, (not the fox).  Hopefully the chickens will be safe in their renovated home.

a wonderful friend gave us three chooks and a rooster yesterday - Col spent two days renovating the fence of he duck pen cause a fox had broken through the chicken wire and got the fox - now the fence is lined with roofing iron !
