The only reason a fox would attack is due to fear, the RSPCA said today after a fox attacked a one-month-old baby. A spokeswoman for the animal welfare organisation said:
It's extremely unusual for foxes to attack young children or anyone.
It's not typical fox behaviour at all. Foxes will come closer to a house if there are food sources. Then they can become quite bold, but they usually do back off and run away when there's people around.
