Every day in the papers there seems to be a new piece calling for the urban fox population to be culled.
I'm sick to death of people over exaggerating and using words like "murdered 2 children." Whilst I can't even being to understand the grief that the poor children's parents must be facing, I still think people are being ridiculous in their methods to prevent this sort of thing.
Today a paper called for them to be culled.
There has been 3 foxes that have killed humans in the past 20 years. Two of those cases where discredited as fox attacks. In the past year alone there has been at least 20x more cases of domesticated animals killing humans.
The papers are simply looking at ways to get around the population to sway them to allow fox hunting again and they are shifting their own blame. If humans didn't offer food to these WILD animals, and the council actually did there job and improved waste disposal & sanitation facilities then the foxes wouldn't be in urban areas.
And I'll get off my soap box now.
