Stop feeding the foxes

Like many, I was upset and angered by the distressing news on Sunday, February 10, about the baby who was attacked by a fox in the suburbs of London.

I am writing to discourage those people who leave food out for foxes to please stop.

Foxes are wild animals, we must not encourage them into our housing estates.

They always have and always will be quite capable of finding their own source of food, without humans leaving left-overs and chicken carcases out for them.

Apart from the risk of attracting these wild animals, there is also the risk of attracting vermin.

Not to mention putting dogs at risk of being injured from eating bones that could get lodged in their throat or cause other serious health problems.
