You look out the window, you see a fox in the garden. What happens next? How about shooting it?

Sounds drastic, but that's the advice from one council in West London. Wandsworth posted the controversial guidelines on its website.

But would you hire a trained marksman to help with pest control?

On our Facebook page Sharon Gilbert says:

Absolutely not. It disgusts me that anyone would think it's OK to treat an animal in such a way.

And Kimberley Winter-Sullivan says:

Foxes are wild animals and we have to learn to live side by side with them.

Hold on tight. After showing off by pulling a wheelie in central London - there was a nasty surprise waiting for the biker in this video.

Blocking his path were two police officers on horseback who saw everything. His punishment? A very public humiliation.


Also among our most clicked videos this week, a day in the life of air traffic control told in timelapse.

If you manage to count them all up, there are 6,000 flights in UK airspace in just a single day - most of those in London.

And here's what happens when the planes are waiting to land -- hundreds of flights stacking around the outskirts of the capital.


Finally, what has to be the ultimate bird's eye view of London.

Yes, that really is an eagle with a camera strapped to its back. He flew over Tower Bridge.

He had a good look at the London skyline before heading off for a good look at the Olympic Stadium. But why was he up there recording it all?

The bird's city tour was part of a campaign by the International Union for Conservation of Nature to mark 50 years of its 'Red List', which highlights threatened and endangered species.
