BBC News - Mother's 'nightmare' after baby twins 'mauled' by fox
The link is really background to the incident I want to discuss.
This family of middle class super wimps had their home invaded by a fox who bit their babies on the faces and tried to eat the arm off one of the babies, they where on the TV earlier and told a sad tale of how they wherent really that able to chase the fox out of the house and then when they got the police there the fox came back and tried to get in, scrapping at the now shut patio doors and a police officer snapped a pic of it on his mobile phone.
If a fox invaded my home and attacked a loved one it would be the first fox to appear as a curried main course that I've heard of.
Anyway, not only, because its Britain and also because its a nice middle class couple, wasnt there a fire arm to blast the varmet with but the documentary went on to say that the mother had been bombarded with hate mail on facebook, groups where set up declaring them liars and the whole thing a brutal set up to legalise fox hunting once more, they had graffiti daubed on their home and cars had their tires vandalised. Can you believe that?
Then there's the crucial mention that foxes, including urban foxes, are protected, they can not be legally killed, you are not allowed to harm them legally, whether they come into your home and attack you or not, you arent meant to contact the council and have them captured and either, get this, "humanely shot" or released in the countryside. Can you believe that?
So what we got is a society in which you dont have the means to defend yourself from animal attack, you arent allowed to do so in anycase and even if you dont you can expect to be victimised by a bunch of wildlife loving thugs?
