I was attacked by some foxes, however not in Peru, but in Ireland.

It was frightening. Now I want to run to Argentina and rent an apartment. I do not think the foxes have the ability to cross the Atlantic.

I am leaving Jennie behind as bait for the foxes.

So I am going to set up some sort of Paypal account and please, feel free to donate. I need the money, as I am not able to generate any income on my own, because I am lazy and a chancer.

Please give. I'll post the online account when I can. And if you give, I'll light a candle in church for you.

You should fire up a kickstarter account for such things.

Crowdfund the sh#t out of something.

Jan, you don't want to see them. Full of mange, poor things. One looks more like an overgrown rat than a fox. they hang out in our front and back yards, but rather them (foxes) then the intrepid travelers collecting money they do not deserve.

I have been on to the Wildlife Trust, Animal Foundation and Dublin SPCA about trapping them and getting them treated, as mange can spread in a den, and the other foxes have it.

As far as the 'poor travellers' are concerned, in my eyes, they suck. Leeches. Human mange.

EDIT

Urban foxes have a bad image. Domesticated dogs do more damage.

Back in the 1960s-1980s in California, if a chicken was missing, it was a raccoon, eggs missing, a skunk, the several times when we had a whole coop of chickens mindlessly slaughtered, domesticated dogs, and I grew up with dogs, cats, goats, horses, etc etc.

Foxes get a bad name, but they do not cause near the damage that unleashed dogs do, and I love dogs.

As far as the couple travelling in SA, they have been doing it on other people's money, from what I can see and what it appears. Perhaps I am wrong, and perhaps I have no right to judge them. But scum always floats to the top.

As for the Idhoans in South America, Quit picking on them. You weren't there were ya? You don't know them, do you? Why do you feel the need to talk sh#t about them? You're filling a need of your own by enjoying others' misadventures however selfish and ignorant they are or aren't.

Jeez, Apogee, Sweet, glam rock (and werent they glam)

TGT, some nice houses, but why so many dogs for a wee fox.

sempervirens, I am just having a bit of fun, and as you can tell by the other posts on this thread, Id imagine others are to. You think I should lighten up? Perhaps you should. And if I am taking the mickey out of the intrepid travellers, they sort of brought it on themselves. And benefitted. So IMO, they can afford to have a bit of fun poked at them. I don't know how they would take it, but this thread certainly hit a nerve in you.

Mungeclimber, Bugs is soooo clever.

T H, thats a good one. I still think my favorite Benny Hill role was when he played the computer expert in the original The Italian Job (he liked big women)

Ricky D, Big Tim Cahill? Whoz dat? The only Tim Cahill I know is an Australian footballer (soccer) that played for Millwall and Everton and now the New York Red Bulls.

Vicious foxes?

To generate some sympathy, you should have gone with vicious ducks! ...just saying.

Edit: rednecked ducks!

Hey, I think I might be able to help, Patrick!

I just got an e-mail from a guy in Nigeria that has a connection to make a bunch of money just for transferring some money!!
