Around our estate there's a long-established and thriving fox poulation, loved by almost everyone. They cause us no trouble, leave no mess and most of delight in seeing trhese beautiful wild creatures, sleeping, basking in the sun and playing in our back gardens. Many of us put out food for them. A couple of weeks ago, a man on an adjacent avenue, was distressed to find one of the yearlings dead on his lawn. There wasn't a mark on it to indicate that it had been hit by a car and managed to stagger into his garden before succumbing to its injuries, so he called a friend who is an RSPCA inspector to view the body. He thought it likely that the animal had been poisened and took the body away to be examined by a vet. The result was conclusive: heavy traces of an arsenic-based poison were found. What kind of person DOES that.....? Okay, not EVERYONE likes the foxes, but to lay poison without considering that it may have been taken by someone's PET is beyond reprehensible.
