    Note to self: Tasers don't work on foxes. Bullets do.

    It would have to be rabid. Foxes are skittish and shy creatures, prone to running and hiding rather than attacking. For it to skulk around after the first attack, then attack a Newfoundland, then a person.... Ain't no way that thing was right in the head.

    Possibly was being fed by humans, taking it's fear of humans away.

    thats funny

    thats either a trained attack fox or theres something wrong with it :eek:
    good advertisement for a 9mm or .45 though :rolleyes:
    Ive heard of tazers being completely non effective against drugged up perps too also pepper spray , but a large hole in the head is hard to ignore:uhoh:

    Yeah, no sane fox would go after a person. They're not that kind of animal.

    I know...such a softball...but this is THR...I can only imagine the postings if it weren't! :)


    Rabid? I agree. Something was going on for sure, but for it to take down a Newfoundland, that's almost unbelievable. Thank goodness there was a CPL (Concealed Pillow License) around , which is about all I can say about that without getting the thread locked :D

    Personally, I'd prefer to say "my neighbor had a shotgun handy..."

    But as they say, "it's the fight in the dog, not the dog in the fight."

    May be good for those of us who rely on big dogs for protection.

    Thanks - and keep your pillows handy...

    Foxes are definitely nervous and will avoid a confrontation with humans.......unless you feed them, then they become like these, laying around the house like they own the place. Before you jump, I live on 300 acres, so I'm not endangering the neighborhood!

    Is anybody else shocked by the bad quality of the tazer cam? Seems like they might not be all that great after all.

    I am, but I'm guessing the cameras are first generation and better ones are on the horizon.

    To you point specifically, if it weren't for pause I'm not sure I could even tell what on earth was going on.

    I think they use them anyways with the expectation that if the footage is needed, they can enhance the image and have enough of an image to be able to tell what is going on.

    I think she said her neighbor did beat off the fox with a pillow.

    Okay, I'm going to shut up now before I get this thread locked.

    So, um, what caliber for a rabid fox?

    Doesn't sound like Mr. Fox made it to "happy ending."

    He should demand a refund.

    Beat it off with a pillow... egads... did the pillow come clean?

    A clear indication that Tazers are great for dudes who argue with cops, but Vulpine opponents laugh at such trickery.

    I've hardly ever even seen a fox, much less had it attack. +1 on the rabid suggestion.
