Turkey Tracks: Fox With Foot Fetish

Fox With Foot Fetish

We’ve had a few chuckles over this information.

You might remember that we lost two chickens to a fox about six weeks or so ago.  Our whole neighborhood had seen her/him from time to time.  Susan McBride and Chris Richmond, up at Golden Brook Farm, thought for a few days fox had gotten one of their sweet, new barn cats.  And, they breathed a sigh of relief when they took their crop of meat chickens to be slaughtered without any loss along the way.

Things died down, then neighbor Marina Schauffler sent me this post:

In case you’re in need of a little humor, here’s an update on the neighborhood fox thief. Your chickens aren’t the only victims. I have now lost FIVE shoes to our fox friend. I kick off shoes on our back porch and noticed that one (then two, then three) were missing, but thought the boys had knocked them off or moved them. When a hiking boot went missing this morning, I hopped online and found that there are foxes with a foot fetish—who steal shoes for their pups to play with! One in Germany got nicknamed Imelda (after Imelda Marcos) ‘cause she ran off with 120 shoes in one community! I have to laugh (even though it’s going to be costly replacing them!)—I wish I could have seen her hauling off the half-pound hiking boot!

My chickens are loose again.

So far, so good…
