foxes living in my shed
We have been enjoying watching a vixen and her 5 cubs playing around, but now discover that they appear to be living in our shed. We opened the door and all hell broke loose. I don't have a problem with foxes, but I would like to be able to enter my shed. Does anybody have any helpful suggestions, as we are also about to recover the shed roof.

First of all the foxes won't do any harm to you, as soon as they can fend for themselves they will split up and find their own territory, the mother then won't have anything to do with them in fact she will chase them away,foxes aren't pack animals so they will soon be away in separate directions, if you really don't want them there don't feed them otherwise they will stay. Could you not put off recovering the shed roof until they've gone? Personally I would love to have a garden with foxes living in it. :-}
I agree with Gelda, let her rear her cubs in your shed, you'll get lots of pleasure from watching them, and then take back use of it and, recover the roof when they've gone their separate ways. If you just can't cope with this option ( I really hope you can!) then you need to contact Wildlife Rescue and ask them to take the vixen and cubs away, but I hope you can wait a while and let them enjoy your shed and garden! I'd also love to have them living in my shed/garden..........................welsh
