I spotted an injured fox in my garden today (broken hind leg?).
I’ve spoken to the RSPCA and they have advised me that they won’t come out unless I can actually see the fox at the time I am calling, or if I have it contained. To this end, they have suggested that I set up a feeding routine to gain its trust and attract it my garden at regular intervals.
Can I therefore request that if you see it, you don’t feed it?
If, however you find it, and are able to contain it, or if you find it collapsed please call the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999 (24 hours).
The RSPCA unfortunately will put him down if you do manage to get him.
Also I'll PM you with my details as I have a trap and may be able to help you get him.
It may be that he has mange, of which one of the symptoms is limping. If so, I can get some homeopathic meds to you [drops in jam sandwiches] but speak to Karen first.
I wonder if this is the same fox I feed. Female, recently broken back leg (i think left but not 100%). She’s been coming to me on Rutland Gardens for about a year. She has a few small black scars on her nose but is otherwise very good condition - bar the recently broken leg.
You could try these guys. Based in Trent Park. http://www.wras-enfieldwildlife.org.uk/index.html
