Child aged three bitten by fox at playgroup in Brighton

Monday, 21 June 2010

A three year old boy was attacked by a fox at a playground next to the Dorothy Stringer High School. The boy attended a party there when he saw a tail coming out under the building and wanted to stroke it. Relatives took the child to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where he was treated and released. The playgroup which have been operated for over 35 years say that they have been aware of the foxes and that they contacted a local wildlife expert for advise. He said the foxes do not post a treat and since the building is to be broken down in a couple of weeks there was no problem. The playgroup now contacted Defra and a local pest control company to advise on what to do.


This is the second article I read about foxes attacking children. It seems to becoming a real problem. I think they should consider bringing the foxes somewhere else. Now that the foxes have been negatively in the News some people might want to hunt and kill them. This should be prevented. I do not think the fox is to blame in this article. It just wanted to protect itself. The boy did not see it was a fox so he is not to blame either. I think this is an unfortunate accident with a luckily good outcome as the boy was not seriously injured.
