Yes its mating time and it would have been a male fox looking for a bit of nookie so don't worry it wouldn't have been in any pain

Use to see one running across the open fields in Birkenhead park every morning and one morning seen a full litter of little ones with their mum playing on the road by park high school, they soon scattered back in to the thick growth when they spotted me and the dog.

Nearly got knocked over by a fox dashing out of the bushes and across the road, being chased by a bloody great alsation. I don't think the alsation wanted to kill it though.

The noise you heard is commonly known as the vixen's scream, although dog foxes sometimes also make this noise. It is thought that vixens make this call to attract males - and this is the fox's mating time

I've been hearing them the last few nights. They live up on the Gorse on Gorsehill Road (New Brighton). Thankfully, as the bins haven't been emptied since before Christmas, they have plenty to rummage about in during the bad weather.

Yeah there's been one out the front of ours most nights, makes for pretty patterns in the snow. The noise is a little odd but I do like spotting them on the cctv the next day

One ran past me down our road on Saturday night about 9.oopm. We hear them all the time behind our house until about Feb crying to each other (mating calls) sometimes they sound like a child crying.
