  • I am unable to do this myself is there anyway I can receive help I'm on my own with my children -who were the ones who found the fox and have been very distressed over night not being able to sleep in thier bedroom due to it looking out onto the garden - I have been sick twice myself since finding the dead animal and suffer from serve anxiety seeing the dead fox I can't explain what that would do to me long term, only other choice is to leave it too rot and not go in the garden anymore which I'm reluctant too do due to diseases ,smell, and just the pure cruelty of leaving it but I am unable to go anywhere near it let alone bag it up.
