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.
True, he probably does, but as i have said, its not going to stop people throwing their food waste onto the streets.
The reason the councils had to get the big close top bins in the first place is because if the rubbish increase on the streets and they had to stop the foxes getting into them.
Some of the bins have locks, and if they are locked, people just throw the rubbish on the floor beside the bins. The reason some are locked is because the kids were setting fire to them. Maybe it would be better to invest in non flammable big bins....when they have the money.
many of the private fast food chains do not bother with the commercial bins because they do not want to pay for them, so once again, they use their smaller free bins and the overflow goes onto the streets.

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.

That's true.

On top fo that most people get their bins taken every 2 weeks. It used to be weekly. I can't imagine how a family of 4 deals with that, me and my hosuemate struggle witht he 2 of us. Over Christmas it was a 3 week gap between the bins being taken. I seen some of my neighbours with piles of bin bags out the back of their houses.

Then they rasie council tax... lol

And the bin men strikes always "conveniently" happen during the hot summer months. Its hygienically incorrect to try and bury dead body in your back yard less than 6 foot underground in the heat, let alone leaving rubbish on the streets for weeks on ends.  I am sure they do it on purpose!!

The last mention of a baby (allegedly)being attacked by a fox was 3yrs ago. Now, think about all the children who have been maimed or killed by pitbull-type dogs in that time ....... why are there any of these type of dogs in this country? Especially when most of them seem to be owned by irresponsible morons? And why are most of those dogs owned anyway ..... so that they can be used in illegal dog/badger fights. How about the government sorts out that pressing problem first.

Thing with the bring fox hunting back because they're mauling our baba's message is, the problem is urban foxes. How often to the hunts go round the outskirts of major cities clopping along pavements and avoiding wheelie bins? They hunt in the countryside where they aren't a problem.

So true, foxes maiming babies or children is not a regular occurrence.  As for the amount of foxes, there are a lot in certain areas, mainly areas where food is available. For those who want to bring back fox hunting, I do not see how they are going to achieve that in  the towns? And as I have said, it will not make people any more hygienic.
The area I lived in had many foxes, but although they would rip up the rubbish bags people could not be bothered to put in the correct bins, the main problem were the pitbulls, or more like their irresponsible young teenage owners who used them as "weapons". This was put a stop to in many areas and they are no longer allowed to keep them.

No excuse for generating so much rubbish without recycling.  Food waste collections are weekly so whats the issue?

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

Maybe a Homer fox:

Homer: Stupider like a fox!

Easier to blame the fox.  Maybe if there were a screen doors and windows lobby.

Food waste collections where I live are every 2 weeks, same with where my lives in Scotland.

They are no longer weekly and have not been for a few years now. they are fortnightly now, but the councils have but a lot more big bins around, although as I have mentioned, some have locks on, mainly the commercial ones. But the estates do have enough bins.
I still can not understand how in "poverty" areas, how they have so much rubbish, although a lot of it is fast foods junk.
recycling is a no no in many inner areas, they can not even be bothered to throw their rubbish in the bins provided, let alone sectioning them out for recycling.

They know the foxes are around, they have even been on tv saying so, so to leave a baby unattended with the doors open is not a good idea, foxes or no foxes.
