Who Digs This

A couple of weeks ago a hole appeared in my lawn. At first I thought it was a burrow, but upon closer inspection it only went half an arms length deep and then stopped. I left it for a few days just in case the creature that had made it, needed to come back and finish it off, but when nothing changed I filled it in.

Hole in the lawnThe next day I found all the soil I had packed in spread across the grass. The bottom of the hole was still empty.

I’ve been thinking about what sort of animal would have taken such a dislike to my garden. Squirrels are too small; moles would be pushing the soil up, rather than pulling it out; cats don’t dig that deep. So, yet again, I’m going to have to blame it on the foxes. Why though? That’s what I want to know.

I’m going to fill the hole up again this weekend, and this time I’ll put a slab of concrete over it. If they move that I’m going to start worrying.
