Bosses at Southmead Hospital in Bristol have called in pest controllers to help get rid of foxes from near the maternity unit.
They want to stop the mammals from climbing through open windows and possibly harming newborn babies.
Recently foxes have made a home for themselves in the hospital grounds. The North Bristol NHS Trust say that they must prioritise the safety of babies.
The Trust said the move was a "last resort" and urged locals to stop feeding the foxes.
But the move has angered animal lovers on social media, who are demanding the foxes are removed but not killed.
However, the Trust say they have taken the animals' welfare seriously.
