The link to where I copied that from is posted under it..
'We get foxes in our garden all the time. My son recently saw a fox walking along the fence like a cat."
"Things like how they dispose of their rubbish is really important, and bagging things up and not feeding the foxes."
Have also taken the above 2 from the link. As i keep saying, they know about the problem about the foxes so they have to start protecting their children more, and the rubbish is a problem in many inner city areas.
I know Bromley, the area is not crime free, so my point is you do not leave a broken back door, broken for too long in those areas.
I feel for the mother and although it sounds as if I am blaming her, that is not my intentions, but better precautions could have been made considering the area knew of the dangers of foxes. (above post from link proves this) if people threw their rubbish away properly the foxes would soon move on and not breed even more there.
Where I lived (not too far from Bromley) we had foxes too and 1st, would never leave the back door unlocked if we were not sitting in the garden ourselves, because of thieves and secondly, we were always aware that foxes were a threat.
Saying all that, i so hope the child makes a full recovery and is young enough not to get emotionally scarred. poor little boy.
