Oh the Irony! Jamie Vardy Puts Up Fence Outside Home After Coming Under 'Siege' From Foxes

Callum Rice-Coates

​Jamie Vardy has been forced to put up a fence around his home to keep out (would you believe it) foxes, according to ​the Daily Star.

The Leicester forward moved into a house in the countryside last year, and has reportedly become quite the farmer, growing fruit and keeping pigs and chickens to provide eggs.


However, the Vardy's fowl have come under attack (or siege as the Star puts it) from pesky foxes, forcing the striker and his wife Becky to buy a high security  hen house, and put up wire fences to keep out the ginger pests (not you, Paul Scholes).

The Star quotes a "local" as saying: "The foxes are a menace and they kill for fun. Once one gets into a hen house it is game over for the birds.  I once lost 12 in a night. It was a case of 'Hens 0 Fox 12'.

"They will keep coming back to the same area until they find a weakness in the defence and then they'll pounce."


Vardy has proved just as clinical for the other Foxes in recent weeks, with five goals in his last seven games in all competitions.

The former Fleetwood striker has been like a fox in his own hen house since Craig Shakespeare replaced the controversially dismissed Claudio Ranieri, after a relatively underwhelming first half of the season.
