“Both In It Together”

Posted By on July 20, 2010

My father — from whom we bought this house, and who is therefore the one to blame for the foxes’ den in the first place — has today sent me a copy of Both In It Together – A Farmer’s Life With Foxes written by John Carter.

It is a rather sweet little book, written by a farmer who has done battle with foxes over many years, but who also respects them and their lifestyle and would not indiscriminately kill them. The foxes he describes are definitely not urban (it’s written by a farmer, what do you expect?) but around his farm in Devon. Well worth a read if you want a slightly different, but not unreasonable, viewpoint on foxes and their lives. (The article linked above includes an email and postal address for more details about the book and also purchasing; it’s £5 in shops in the area, or £5.50 by post.
