Another source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘The boy is recovering well but his hand was pretty mangled.
‘If there is a message to come out of this, it’s that foxes are a major public health issue.
‘People should really be talking to the authorities about this – they need to be harangued about what should be done because this is another horrific fox attack.’Really? Let's see, a couple of attacks (some highly dubious) causing minor injuries vs how many dead in the NHS hospital scandal? And how many more to come?
And yet, it's the foxes that should be a 'major public health concern'? The one we should be writing to our MP about?
Pull the other one!
How'd it gain access, anyway?
The fox had crept into the house through an open back door, which was apparently awaiting repair by the council.*stunned silence*
...she fought desperately to release him, repeatedly kicking the fox until it eventually let go.Really? Never seen a fox yet that didn't run like a rabbit the minute someone raised their voice. Apart, that is, from the Maneaters of Richmond...
A spokesman said: ‘Police were called by staff at St Thomas’ to reports of a baby boy admitted after being attacked by a fox.’The family didn't call the police? The hospital did..?
Something stinks to high heaven about this story.
As soon as I read the bit about the insecure back door awaiting repair by the council I thought Hmmmmm.
That said....'Something must be done'...cried Da may-yor.
It was once a secondary means of income for Asian takeaways but an abundance of Huddersfield fox has led to resurgence of the local fur trade.
And Mr Tso`s lair cakes are the best.
The main food source of yer South London Urban Fox is the dustbin...the dustbin full of Findus frozen foods.
Maybe this fox was driven insane by the Bute?
Was there any horse meat in those Fox's Fingers?
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: 'We must do more to tackle the growing problem of urban foxes'
Yes, take the fucking bins away more than twice a month and watch the fox population plummet.
A case for lifting the ban on fox hunting. I would like nothing better than to hear the cry of the hounds and the blare of the horn as the hunt gallops down Oxford Street and across parliament square in hot pursuit of environmentalists,Greens, lefties, animal rights activists and other assorted loons. A bonus of course would be to catch a few foxes on the way.
I throw stones at the bastards, as they killed the family rabbit. That said, apart from being cheeky bastards (and noisy at night in the summer) they're pretty harmless. A health hazard? I don't think so.
I once had a fox drink out of the dog's bowl by the front door. Mind you, it legged it when greeted with the raised voice... The Dog wasn't too impressed either and gace it a good nip or three too. Does this mean that I'm guilty of hunting too?
Check out the parents in the 'Mail' - chavalicious!
'Denny', god, the kid's already got problems with that name...
"The main food source of yer South London Urban Fox is the dustbin...the dustbin full of Findus frozen foods."
"Yes, take the fucking bins away more than twice a month and watch the fox population plummet."
Oh, sadly, I think there's enough leftover pizzas and kebabs (and the rats that they attract) on London's streets each night to still support an unnaturally high population...
"Mind you, it legged it when greeted with the raised voice... "
Yup. The idea that mama chav had to battle with it for the baby - ludicrous!
Do they own a dog ? Are they maybe blaming a fox to cover for it? Because that's very un-foxlike behaviour!
"back door awaiting repair by the council"
If your and your children's safety is that important, FIX IT YOURSELVES!
Very strange story this.
My hackles were raised when the papers keep saying Bromley when it's clearly Lewisham.If you don't know the area then the Downham estate is the New Addington of the area (or Hull perhaps).
These people aren't very bright and wont be able to keep the story up for long if they are lying-think Shannon Matthews!
I had a ginger (neutered) tom cat that went for a fox that had come into our garden. The fox scarpered but not before a couple of yelps from a good clawing.

"These people aren't very bright and wont be able to keep the story up for long if they are lying-think Shannon Matthews!"
Shannon Matthews was and remains, an innocent little girl, WC Jaded. The liar was Karen Matthews and lest you also forget specimens even less bright than Shannon Matthews - think of the easily duped West Yorkshire Police and 'there' 24 day search costing taxpayers £3,200,00.
Oh, missed 'to' or three noughts 'their'. Easily done for plod costings.
That's two mistakes i've noticed recently Melvin-medication wearing off?
Of course Shannon Matthews is innocent,you knew full well I meant "the Shannon Matthews case".
I apologise on behalf of the WYP,i'm sure you Melvin were not fooled and immediately informed them that the family were lying from the start? Or as usual were you an armchair hindsight expert sniping after the event?Let's guess which one?
Downham, Bromley, Kent....s'cuntry innit! Must be a staffie somewhere in the picture?
"The fox had crept into the house through an open back door, which was apparently awaiting repair by the council."
Though the 'aasing 'ssociashun has now pointed out that the door was repaired last month.
That bovine smell's getting stronger by the hour.
Fishier than Baldricks steak and kidney pudding........
"Very strange story this.

Yes, the local news story (wherein dwells a lot of commenters who are crying 'foul!' too) got hammered for that..
"That bovine smell's getting stronger by the hour."
Especially since the story about where the baby was when it was 'attacked' keeps changing!
