    You are a genius Gerry…should be writing yourself, who knows the next Benny Hill?
    Seriously though, Hadleys has always a been a very reliable place to find foxes.
    Some of the pubs out around Longford, Evandale and Cressy must be “hotspots” as well, the Task Free Fox Force spend a lot of time in them.

    Another boatload of asylum seeking foxes was intercepted off Northern Tasmania last night. The are being taken to Maria Island for processing by UNO and WHO before being allowed to land. Their leader states that they are fleeing from persecution at the hands of local farmers and dog packs in Mayneland and are all refugees.

    The Task Force is insisting that they hand over their scats for identification purposes.

    A whinging greenies spokesperson stated that these foxes are just opportunists, as they see Tasmania as a ‘soft touch’ and these foxes are only looking for an easy life, knowing they will never be caught and there is at least five million Dollars a year being spent on their protection and welfare.
