Fox Bites Off Baby's Finger In Cot Attack

A mother alerted by the screams of her baby boy finds a fox attacking her son in his bedroom.

Police are investigating a fox attack on a one-month-old baby boy which left his hand seriously injured.

The animal bit the infant's finger off after dragging him from his cot after entering his bedroom in Bromley, southeast London, on Wednesday afternoon.

The child's mother was alerted by his screaming and rushed into his room to see his hand in the animal's mouth.

After a short struggle, the mother managed to free her child, but his finger had been ripped off.

Plastic surgeons were able to reattach the baby's finger and he was said to be recovering well.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "We were called at 1638 on February 6 by staff at St Thomas's Hospital to reports a baby boy who had been admitted to hospital after being attacked by a fox.

"Police attended to find a four-week-old baby with a hand injury.

"The baby was admitted to hospital after the attack at its home address in Bromley."

London Mayor Boris Johnson said his thoughts are with the boy and his family.

"Thankfully this sort of attack, though terrible, is rare, but we must do more to tackle the growing problem of urban foxes," he said.

An RSPCA spokeswoman said the only reason a fox would attack is due to fear.

She added: "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."

In 2010, twin baby sisters were attacked by a fox while sleeping in their cots in east London.

IIRC the attack in Bristol wasn't proved to be a fox. The family had dogs as well I believe.

Fox attacks are extremely rare, dog attacks are very common, they hardly get into the papers unless it's fatal.

I do like dogs! It's always the owner who's at fault imo.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
