A fox dragged a one-month-old baby from his cot and mauled his hand, biting the child's finger off, it has been reported.

The child was left seriously injured after the animal crept into his bedroom in Bromley, southeast London, on Wednesday afternoon.

The child's mother was alerted by his screaming and rushed into his room to see his hand in the animal's mouth, the Mail On Sunday reported.

I never believe these stories of foxes entering houses and attacking children. Trouble is, a lot of people do, which doesn't bode well for the reputation of foxes in general :(

Me neither. Still, in case they are true, how about letting us hunt the little thugs again? We never seemed to have this problem with foxes eating children before the ban!

I've never heard of a fox doing anything like this.  They avoid people for good reason.  If a fox did do something like this I would suspect rabies.

They are wild animals and it is not improbable that some foxes can do this, but they rather avoid humans than attacking. It could be that it was sick, but I dont think it saw the kid as food.
Even though they are wild they can become quite cuddly when domesticated in some cases. Some say the same about bears and tigers as well, but when a fox goes crazy and instinctive people dont usually die.

It would be nice though if all foxes were like these two. :)>>>>

It's not much of a fox if it get's caught, imo.

Because foxes generally behave a certain way doesn't mean they always do.  At any rate I find this story far more credible than some of the stuff posted around here.

This is what happens when we destroy an animals habitat.

Quote

London Mayor Boris Johnson said more needs to be done to deal with the problem of urban foxes.

"Thankfully this sort of attack, though terrible, is rare, but we must do more to tackle the growing problem of urban foxes," he said.
"They may appear cuddly and romantic but foxes are a pest and a menace, particularly in our cities."

We all know his agenda:

I lived in South London all my life, no foxes when I was younger. But over the years the foxes have been attracted to the cities because of the available food they can find thrown out onto the streets.
YES, without the ***** footing about from the lefty do gooders, I have seen it with my own eyes.
Sorry, but this has to be said....in the area I lived, when the immigrant population started to flourish from people from all over the worlds corners, they seemed to not had been told about hygiene standards and that we do not throw rubbish into the street, especially food.
The immigrant housing block which had been made by the council to house them as they arrived to England awaiting to know if they could stay or not, was an absolute s*** hole. The rubbish was piled in bins, nappies, food, and other wastes just loosely thrown around the bins.
I always wondered how people who were allegedly so poor could have so much rubbish in the first place?

The foxes are now a problem and the councils are asking for culling to be brought back. WHY? how about just tell people about NOT throwing their waste onto the streets?
The councils know about this problem, thats why they spent millions on the new bins which the foxes can not get into, but they did not bank that many people are too good damn lazy to lift the lid up.

The private fast food restaurants have not help the  matter either, the have been numerous programmes about the "local" kebab shop or chicken shop  throwing waste food in black sacks onto the streets.

So if they get rid of the foxes once and for all, will it make people any more hygienic? I do not think so.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

it is true and its certainly not the first.
It has happened a few times now in the inner cities.

Well they left their back door open from what I've read. Pretty stupid thing to do when a baby is unattended.


They are shoving this story all over the place and trying to call for a cull.... We all know the true agenda. Boris Johnson wants fox hunting back, that's why he is saying that rubbish.
