I had a fox sniffing around the other day however didn't stay very long when my two large dogs ( one being a Doberman the other a lab cross boxer) caught sight of it and considering my two dogs sleep in a kennel outside which we have now moved next to the chickens I doubt it will be back and if it does there the electric fence to contend with which my two dogs knows to avoid
