There is no need to destroy

There is no need to destroy them! Just relocate them somewhere the kids can't bugthem and let them be.

Leave the foxes alone!!!!

Leave the foxes alone!!!! Please!!!! Obviously, they have been there a while to have had kits (i.e., baby foxes). That school borders the Forest Hills Golf Course, which is probably where they spend most of their time roaming. Foxes eat mostly small mammals (mice, rats), and wounded birds. They are probably helping keep that school clear of rodents. PLEASE, LEAVE THEM ALONE!

Bring them out to my house and make them a new den. They will rid the place of the bushy tailed rats. The fox that was living here some A## run off thr road to hit her.

These are nocturnal animals

These are nocturnal animals in urban settings and very shy. Also, quite beautiful and behaviorally, similar to our domestic house cats. Mother and kits should have been left alone.

Has anyone called Augusta Animal Control to find out what's been done with them?...Chronicle...looking at you.

If you begin allowing foxes

If you begin allowing foxes to live at schools, the next thing you know there will be wolves, and then panthers, and then saber tooth tigers, and then dinosaurs! You know how this ecology stuff works! Stop them now and break the food chain - before it's too late!

Yea....Leave them and then

Yea....Leave them and then make sure that all students are fully protected against rabies.

"He soon found himself face to face with a fox. The animal attacked, cutting
into Motil's leg. Tests would later confirm his fears: The animal had
rabies. Motil's case marks the 100th rabies case this year for Arizona, the
highest number in 15 years."

Some of you people are so stupid I don't see how you get out of the bed without breaking your neck every morning.
