IN REGARD to the star letter of October 5, Don't Be Foxed By Killer's Cute Face, a fox would no more attack a child than a domestic dog would.

As with domestic dogs it is possible to have a rogue one but normally foxes avoid human beings.

There is the odd naive suburban fox which thinks man is his friend and will be more trusting if food is put out.

Foxes are hunters of birds, small animals and even rats, mice and slugs. They are not interested in hurting domestic cats.
