Bloody hell Davy, is there a lack of rabbits in the UK or what??
BBC News - How common are fox attacks on humans?
The University of Bristol's Mammal Research Unit estimates there are 225,000 adult rural foxes and 33,000 urban foxes across Britain.
Quote from the founder of a group called the "National Fox Welfare Society":
"We receive pictures of foxes curled up on people's settees. People put food inside their houses and think it is lovely to share their living room with a wild fox," he said.
"But if the fox gets into that habit, the people two doors down might not be that happy."
Have to say that sounds bizarre! I guess foxes aren't classified as feral vermin, then. Would last about as along as it takes to chamber a round here, heh. I saw a juvenile fox at the range here on Saturday...bet quite a few club members would have had itchy trigger fingers lol
You have rabies over there too, right? Bit of a worry
