"Boggis was a chicken farmer. He kept thousands of chickens. He was enormously fat. This was because he ate three boiled chickens smothered with dumplings every day for breakfast, lunch and supper." - Fantastic Mr Fox

Boggis is one of three farmers that appear in Roald Dahl's 1970 children's story Fantastic Mr Fox. Along with Bunce and Bean, he makes it his business to do all he can to prevent Mr Fox from taking any more of his chickens. From shooting at him to starving the Fox family out of their home, he'll do anything to stop cunning Mr Fox.

In Wes Anderson's 2009 stop-motion animated film version of Fantastic Mr Fox, Boggis was given a first name - Walter - and was voiced by actor Robin Hurlstone.
