I have just read that following the horrific attack by a fox on a newborn baby in its home, a schoolgirl has now been attacked while out jogging, the fox described as snarling, hissing and growling.

So, what is the natural nature of a fox? Well, it is a vicious, cruel killing machine.

I am fed up with hearing about the do-gooders, the townies, who think they can manage the countryside better than the people who live, work, nurture and preserve it.

Like the animal rights activists, who years ago, unlawfully cut fences and broke into mink farms and released hundreds of mink to the wild, where they multiplied and soon devastated our water birds, fish and water voles, some people also believe the hunt is responsible for trapping and releasing urban foxes into the countryside. Why would they do that?
