CLIFF Mitchell is mystified as to how foxes come to be in possession of the eggs which they had left in his garden (Garden Visitor Gives Me Gifts, News Shopper, October 26).

They were put out for foxes by fox feeders along with steaks, chickens and all things nice. You should see their Christmas treats.

It is very sad likeable but completely misguided people such as Mr Leman and friends should feed foxes and cause all of the present problems instead of devoting their efforts to helping the starving millions in the world.

The fox is a wild animal who is quite capable of fending for themselves.
