Fox Rips Off Fingers From 4 Month Old Baby.
A Fox ripped off a four-week-old baby’s finger after sneaking into his home
and dragging him.
mother and baby were not at their house in Bromley, Kent, left, on
Sunday - after a fox entered through their back door, right, that had
been left open because it was broken and was awaiting repair"Neighbours described hearing screams
coming from the home of the baby who was dragged from his cot by a fox
before the animal tore his finger off. The child was asleep in his cot when
his mother, in the next room, heard a piercing scream then a heavy thud
as the four-week-old boy was flung to the floor. Residents said the family had moved from
the home in Bromley, Kent, following the attack on Wednesday and the
house appeared empty today. Council chiefs said the incident was 'very tragic but rare'. When the baby's mother heard the screams
from her son's room, she ran in to find his hand lodged 'halfway down
the animal's throat'. She fought desperately to release him, repeatedly
kicking the fox until it eventually let go.
Surgeons later reattached the baby’s
finger in an ‘extremely difficult’ but successful three-hour
operation.‘The baby is recovering well,’ said a source. The child also suffered puncture wounds to the face in what is believed to be the worst attack of its kind in Britain. The fox had crept into the house through an open back door, which was apparently awaiting repair by the council. The horrific attack in suburban Bromley, South-East London, has revived the debate over culling urban foxes. Neighbours said foxes have been a 'menace' in the area and are now worried about the safety of their own children.
Khadine Peters, 36, who lives next door
to the house where the fox attack happened, said: 'I heard screams,
but I didn't think anything of it. 'Then I saw an ambulance and wondered what was going on. 'They are a nice couple. They have three children: an older son and daughter plus a baby boy. 'It's so sad. I hope the baby is okay.' Paula Wellington, 36, said: 'Foxes are menace around here.
