We face a growing problem with our urban foxpopulation. Personally I wouldn't rule anything in or out but ultimately thisis a matter on which the boroughs must take the lead. Pest control falls tothem. Attacks like that on this little boy thankfully are rare but foxes are agrowing menace. Borough leaders need to look carefully at the facts and worktogether to respond. Better informing Londoners about foxes in an effort todrive them from our bins and our back yards would be a good place to start.
