Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings I have a fox on my camera occasionally .. Reply To: I have a fox on my camera occasionally ..


I don’t know – I saw a fox in my garden last week – I’ve heard that they tend to leave them alone due to their spikes, but I reckon it depends on the fox – they might try attempt and end up hurting the hedgehog but not killing it – but to be honest, I don’t actually know and I’m just guessing. I wonder if they are more likely to eat smaller hedgehogs such as hoglets.

That’s my greatest concern, but I guess we just have to leave wildlife to get on with it, I don’t think there’s much we can do about it – And I guess we might not know if it happens – so it might be better like that. (Unless you catch it on your camera which would be absolutely horrendous for you)

On a news article this week I saw a photo of a whale gobbling up a seal and it absolutely broke me. But what can you do? I wouldn’t mind seeing a whale eating an scary looking fish, but a cute seal pup, it was horrible.
