Thread: Fox "traps" eight people

    Fox "traps" eight people

    'Vicious' fox traps eight people in Cambridgeshire sports club - BBC News
    That was title of the news story anyway.
    A couple of things interested me apart from the thoughts of 8 grownups finding themselves terrorised by a single fox;
    Someone tried to "distract the fox by offering it food" and was bitten - was the fox used to being fed and was trying to grab more?
    Near the end there's this line " the pest controller suggested the fox may have been an urban animal, which somehow found itself in the middle of the countryside" - I wonder how that could happen..............
    Too many crazies feeding foxes, trapping them in cities and releasing them in the countryside perhaps?
    I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, but it was only some fecker with a torch bringing me more work

    I also saw this on the BBC news site, did not know if I should laugh or cry !!.. The media have Disney'ised everything in the countryside to the point where grown adults are terrified of a single fox.. Christ...

    A few months ago, I was trying to nip over the moor and there was a traffic jam of 8 tourist cars, all held up by three exmoor ponies in the road sniffing the first car, after 2 mins of it I couldnt stand it anymore, got out of the car walked to front
    and guided the ponies off the road.. the lead car driver wound his window down and thanked me because he and his wife did not know what to do and were afraid of the "horses"...

    Neither the Wildlife Trust nor RSPCA was prepared to comment on the behaviour of the fox as their staff had not seen the animal.
    That's very unlike the RSPCA not to voice an opinion!
