The only mammals you should be shooting with an air rifle are rats, rabbits and grey squirrels, all with the landowners permission and all humanely dispatched. Preferably with one head shot. Even talking about shooting a fox on an open forum just plays into the hands of the Anti's. If you need a fox removing and you don't have the equipment or knowhow hire a professional.

if you indeed have a "animal"...scatting on your childrens toys..........i suggest you ring the council and ask for the Enviromental Health officer and explain your problem.....they will more than likley send someone around to trap it.......

i had a severe rat problem a few years ago due to next door keeping chickens......i mentioned rats ...and they took a very dim view of that a nd someone came round FOC the next day........

I suspect, whilst you are of course right, you might have wasted your breath! The OP hasn't been back on the site since joining and asking his question, so I think we might be chasing after the wind posting anything more to help the chap!

Maybe he was trying to get the wrong kind of response off all us blood thirsty, animal murdering gun nuts, that the antis think we are!

More than likely !

I would recommend an AR15 with full auto option and large capacity magazines just to be on the safe side. A bayonet might also prove useful in a tight situation. Good luck! 

Don’t be silly 🙃 no where near a big enough caliber 

nitro express minimum for such a dangerous  beast

I trust your opinion. You're the only one on this forum who's been hunting in Jurassic Park, so you must know your stuff

It appears our friend has never even heard a fox referred to as ‘Charlie’.

Or its a sense of humour.. the net is for me not a place to be overly emotionally taken by, no offence was meant to any here.

There fairly large but a dangerous beast should really be despatched with a rifle 🤔

my 4 bore is more suitable for flying stuff 🤭

 I was thinking of the old solid slug 4 bores both smooth and rifled a "stopping rifle" as they say, what's it like to shoot they look to have one hell of a kick
