One-month-old Bromley baby has finger torn off by fox

A ONE-MONTH-OLD baby boy had his finger torn off by a fox in Bromley.

The animal tore the infant's finger off after dragging him from his cot after entering his bedroom, according to reports.

A police spokesman said: "We were called at 4.38pm on Wednesday by staff at St Thomas's Hospital to reports a baby boy who had been admitted to hospital after being attacked by a fox.

"Police attended to find a four-week-old baby with a hand injury.

"The baby was admitted to hospital after the attack at its home address.

"Inquiries continue."

The child's mother was alerted by his screaming and rushed into his room to see his hand lodged "halfway down the animal's throat", the Mail on Sunday said.

Surgeons were able to reattach the baby's finger and he was said to be recovering well.

An RSPCA spokeswoman said the only reason a fox would attack is due to fear.

She added: "It's extremely unusual for foxes to attack young children or anyone.

It's not typical fox behaviour at all - foxes will come closer to a house if there are food sources.

Then they can become quite bold, but they usually do back off and run away when there's people around."

London Mayor Boris Johnson said more must be done to tackle the growing problem of urban foxes.

He told BBC News: "They may appear cuddly and romantic but foxes are also a pest and a menace, particularly in our cities.

"This must serve as a wake-up call to London's borough leaders, who are responsible for pest control."

Mr Johnson also said his thoughts were "with the baby boy and his family".

Urban foxes never used to be a problem. Now they are because of the amount of food available to them from fast food chains and well-meaning but misguided people who feed them! When people feed foxes, their territory is reduced, allowing more foxes to move in, and they lose their fear of people. They are not pets, they are wild animals, and should be respected as such. I like foxes, and because of this I WILL NEVER FEED THEM!

I agree, how did the fox get into the house. If I had a 1 month old, I would make sure the house is secure. As a former Bromley resident (will move back there in 5 months), I know fox numbers have increased, but I know many people who feed and encourage them. Like any species their population will grow and become more adventuruous if fed. When this happens, they start more predation and scavenging. Lucky baby was not killed. People need to be more socially responsible.

But if it got in through a cat flat that suggests they have a cat, and foxes normally stay clear of cats

The article has been updated to match the one on the nationals, originally the fox had dragged the baby out of his cot

Wonder where in Bromley, was it near woods?

I heard that the Mother tried to get the fox off the baby by dragging/kicking it, surely she must have received some injuries too...and so "inquiries continue"? Something doesn't seem to add up...! I expect they'll be carrying out DNA testing to find out if it was a fox or other canine relative?

Poor baby - but it must have been a large fox to climb into the cot, drag the baby up over the sides then along the floor

Lucky the baby didn't suffer more injuries as it fell over the sides (most cot sides are about a metre high)

And wonder why they went all the way to St Thomas' as surely they could have got to the PRU much quicker?

Wrestle? In previous accounts she kicked it. If she wrestled with it then as in other comments she must have been injured so as well as trying to eat a baby it has attacked an adult

And if neighbours heard screaming why did none go to help?

Is this person fit to be a mother, if she can't even keep her back doors shut?

What will happen when the baby starts crawling / walking?
Actually a very good point, the fox had bitten off the finger and was trying to eat the rest of the baby when the mother wrestled / kicked / fought it off

If it took that long then it was lucky that the doctors could sew it back on - must have been a really clean cut

And very lucky the fox didn't chew & swallow it

Talk about missing the point.
Who cares where it happened, it doesn't matter.
Fact is, foxes are dangerous vermin which need controlling. Hunting should never have been banned and foxes in towns should be poisoned or shot to keep there scabby numbers under control. But, the people who feed them are the ones really to blame.

I heard it was an East European immigrant Islamic paedophile fox, come over stealing our foxes jobs.

The threat to the urban child from domesticated dogs outweigh the threat from foxes massively. If every single dog atack on a child (or adult) was given this much coverage we'd need a bigger internet.

Who leaves door open long enough in February that a fox can wander and start to eat a child!?

A foxes usual MO is to go through bins, scraps of food as well as invertebrates and small mammals, amphibians, , grasses, berries, fruit, fish, birds, eggs, beetles, insects and all other kinds of small animals etc?

So surely it'd go through the kitchen looking for food rather than upstairs to attack a baby kicking and screaming?

There is definitely more to this story imo. Just doesn't ring true.

Talk about missing the point. Who cares where it happened, it doesn't matter. Fact is, foxes are dangerous vermin which need controlling. Hunting should never have been banned and foxes in towns should be poisoned or shot to keep there scabby numbers under control. But, the people who feed them are the ones really to blame.
why is it the countryside alliance always revolves around killing animals and death

Countryside Alliance??? You haven't got a clue, I don't even have a pair of green wellies, just calling it as it is.

Cllr Smith, now that you've established this took place in Lewisham and not Bromley perhaps you could get back to fixing Orpington High Street. This farce has been running for nearly 2 years and will go on even longer if you get sidetracked onto foxes. Please concentrate on the important work and stop chasing headlines.
Thank you for your incredibly helpful advice on how to spend my weekends.

I'm sorry that you object to me helping to establish the truth to protect the Borough's reputation in my own spare time, I hope you don't mind too much but I must confess that I watched the Rugby as well.

If you care to post in your own name rather than snipping trollishly from the sidelines, I will arrange for answers to be sent to any further questions you may care to raise iro Orpington High Street
Touched a nerve there.

1) I wasn't telling you how to spend your weekend. I was pointing out your strange choice of priorities. You are telling us that making sure fox stories are attributed to the correct borough are more important than correcting the High Street you wrecked nearly two years ago?

2) Do you really think Bromley's reputation is enchanced by the mess you have made with Orpington High Street? Do you think it's a showcase for how well Bromley manage town systems?

3) Why do you need to know my name before you can answer? Wasn't it you who used to bleat on here about "play the ball not the man"?

I will be writing formally to Bromley Council and looking forward to see what excuses they can come up with to explain the appalling design that has doubled congestion, how they failed to manage it and allow such a poor quality finish, why they have now replaced part of it with tarmac, and when they will be repairing the other 95%.

Its a complete fiasco. I know it, you know it, News Shopper knows it, but hey - the fox was in Lewisham so everything's OK.

I think someone said the fox had a Lewisham accent. I doubt it would be allowed into Bromley.

The couple concerned have been on the front page of The Scum, and today they are on the front page of The Wail's online edition.

Sorry, but I get the impression that they are now trying to milk this incident.

So the mother had sold her "exclusive" to The Sun

Wonder how much she got - hopefully she'll spend it on the baby
