Fox Attack News

fox attacks

Unfortunately fox attack news, like news of other unusual animal attacks, are increasing.

The fox is already an established wild animal in many urban settings, so it's not that unusual to see them around.  And they have a long history of attacks on farm animals.

So what's changed?

Two things.  The scariest is that they are finding their way into people's homes and attacking children!

The other is that they have also become more aggressive in their attacks on adults as well.  And, for whatever reason, the incidence of rabid fox attacks seem to appear more often too.

Here are a few stories to show what I mean....

Fox bites head of sleeping child in home

On 26 Jun 2002, a mother awoke to find her 14-week-old baby bleeding from the head and the fox "just sitting there" looking at her.

"Fourteen-week-old Louis Day suffered bite marks on his head after the animal darted into the sitting room of the house in Dartford, Kent.His parents say the fox tried to drag the baby out before Louis' father Peter chased it away....

Louis' mother Sue Eastwood was with him when the attack happened.She said: "I'd fallen asleep, Louis was already asleep."The next thing he was screaming and I woke up and I was screaming. "I've seen all this blood coming down his face and the fox is just sitting there staring at us."

Peter Day, the father of Louis, said...""The fox didn't seem scared at all and just stood looking at me."....

Residents in the Temple Hill area of Dartford have complained about the large number of foxes in the area.  They say the animals are becoming braver and are difficult to scare away."...
