Today’s Trove Tuesday article is new to Trove as it is from the Weekly Times (1914-1918), a new and most welcome addition. I came across the article while researching my last post “Sweet Daisy“. It was not available at the time, but from the small summary I could read, I knew it would be perfect for Trove Tuesday. My Electronic Friend came through with the article on Friday, just in time to coincide with the Daisy Diwell/MacRobertson Chocolates post and it is an even better story than I first thought. However, as with most of these “man vs beast” articles, there is a sad ending, but until that end, enjoy the escapades of fantastic Mr Fox of Fitzroy.

thanks for the sad animal warning so I could skim past and be sorry to miss what I am sure is a magnificent post.
There’s a lot of sad animal stuff in The Weekly Times, which is the most political publication in the country. everyone should read about where their food comes from.
I am reassured that our pioneer squatters, their wives, children and employees all had just as bad a time as the animals that eventually made them rich.
See you after your next post. X X
Yes, the story did come to a sad end. The Weekly Times is great and I still buy it from time to time. Dad bought it for the classifieds, now almost extinct.
Suspect it wasn’t killed too immediately given they were carrying clubs…humanity leaves a lot to be desired. Loved the rest of it though and the Fox eating chocs,
Thanks Pauline. Good on the fox for making the most of it while he could.
