    funny thing though, think of all the people in india killed by tigers (about sixty a year) but we expect them people to protect them so that us in the west can get that ''feel good'' about saving them nice cuddly creasures.

    Allegedly, a rogue fox savages 2 kids. The media whips up a storm, and talk is now of culls and persecution.

    Next month marks the 5th anniversary of 52 people being vapourised on London Transport. If we apply the same logic, we should have a cull of the evil 'species' to which the bombers belong. Whether they display murderous tendencies or not.

    Nice thought.

    One of the problems we have is that town folk are becoming more and more remote from nature, so any contact with nature they regard as 'cute'. They encourage urban foxes as if they are cats or pet rabbits, then wonder why he foxes then do what comes naturally and kill the family cat.

    The 'cuteification' of the countryside isnt helped by these so-called 'farms' where kids are brought to cuddle the goats and sheep, and the whole thing encourages kids to regard farm and wild animals in the same vein as cats dogs and rabbits - as pets. Kids need to be shown about farms properly, that they are food production centres, and the little cuddly lambs ARE going to get killed, chopped up and served with mint sauce and roast potatoes. The pet farms do massive damage to kids perceptions of the countryside and farms.

    Thus, these are the people who, when they grow up, complain about fox hunting and let minx go free (to ravage the ecosystem).

    Townies need educating on the realities of life, the countryside and animals, then they would stop mollycoddling foxes and treat them like the vermin they really are.

    So you quote the wrong person, insult them, and post spam, but call me a troll?

    So explain. A fox sneaks into a house, mauls 2 infants, escapes, then a policeman photographs a fox allegedly in the property, saying that this fox is guilty, but it is behind a closed door, and it escapes too? So was this fox the initial fox on scene, indicating that a policeman was already on scene, or did the origional fox escape, then another fox break into the house through the closed door, wait there for it's photograph to be taken, and then open the door again to escape? Does something not add up to people? Or does that seem logical?

    "All foxes are innocent" says Mick

    Maybe, but why not keep an open mind?

    Proof if proof were needed. Fox nipping past the front of the house, not giving a crap about the copper stood there. This is as well as the FOUR caught in the humane fox trap at the back of the house.

    to be fair, that picture simply shows that there is a fox in the street.

    It does not prove that the fox shown, or any other, is guilty of attacking a child.

    However I do not doubt that a fox is capable of entering a house through an open door, and is capable of attacking a small, immobile, smelly and seemingly ill animal which does not defend itself. However it is abnormally rare for a fox to attack a human.

    Mostly when children are mauled it is by a trusted family pet that couldn't possibly do such a thing (thinks its owner) and not by wildlife.

    It would be interesting to know for sure by solid evidence that this case is not a dog attack, but a fox.

    what it shows, along with the 4 ones caught is that a) they have a **** load of foxes there and b) they are not scared of humans, ergo, entering the house and attacking the kids is no more unlikely than it entering a chicken coop and killing the chickens, which they do frequently.

    Except that as you know, the number of fox attacks on humans is about zero. So the probability is not as you suggest.

    well clearly not, as we just found out. THESE foxes have no fear of man as demonstrated above, therefore will have no fear of attacking. Go into the countryside and try getting near a fox, you wont get within 100 yards of one. And it certainly wouldnt stroll past you as in the photo above.

    Jeez, dont you hate townies who think they know about wild animals................
