I cannot understand this type of person. If something is beautiful as it is, why do they feel the need to change it. It surely isn't the same for them as it isn't for you now they have done all the remodelling. ..
Why do you not feel this same way...about the foxes?
I'm sorry, but I've been reading along, and most of the things you're proposing, such as "hundreds of rabid foxes running thru the city," and one fox killing 35 chickens in one night
--just seem very, very far-fetched.
Feral dogs are MUCH more likely to have been your chicken murderers--a healthy fox will generally only kill what it plans to eat, and then exit posthaste to enjoy the meal somewhere in relative safety.
Just because you saw a lone fox a couple days later, does not mean he was necessarily your original culprit.
As to hundreds of rabid fox attacks, um, the furious form of rabies is very rare indeed, even among the already-rare incidence of both forms of rabies, or total cases of rabies.
Much more likely, in a rabid animal, is the "dumb" form, where they stumble, cannot coordinate movements, have difficulty with swallowing (hence the "hydrophobic" mythology, and generally wouldn't really be capable of attacking anyone or anything, or even defend themselves if they were attacked. It's a brain encephalitis, after all, and fatal.
Yes, it's a nasty disease, but I don't see folks having to wear Kevlar suits to work, to avoid the rabid Zombie fox herds, out prowling for human flesh.
Find ways, as Darkevs said, to live as harmoniously as possible with the wildlife. After all, they were there first.
*None of this applies to millipedes, sorry, until someone can prove THEIR particular vital niche in the ecosystem, to me <shudder>
