REPLYING to Mrs Falkner's experience with the urban fox, there is another side to this creature.
My daughter, who also lives in London, had a home visit from an urban fox via a cat flap.
It then proceeded to urinate and mess all over the kitchen floor, climb on work surfaces, knock over the kitchen bin and left a smell that was awful.
The garden is also not out of bounds to this creature; holes dug everywhere, garden looking like a visit from Time Team.
Maybe if Mrs Falkner had had to scrub and disinfect after a visit from this pest she may see it in a different perspective – a pest, a chancer, and a nuisance that has no endearing qualities at all.
