Terrifying hearing screams, I wake up to screaming thinking it's a woman getting beaten up, turns out it's a fox. So hearing a scream you can think, "bloody fox" and then turn iver and get back to sleep. no wonder children are getting fat not going out with all this going on.

That's what i'm saying, you often hear foxes scream and sounds very much like a woman screaming. After a while you get used to the foxes and when someone does scream you tend to ignore it thinking it is just a fox.

Totally agree about the foxes/screaming but what's that got to do with kids getting fat? That's just down to bad parenting.
