    On Sunday the 6th of June 2010 I received the call that nobody would dream of receiving.

    It was the Duty Desk sergeant from Stoke Newington Police Station asking if I could attend a property in Hackney with some of their Officer's. That was all I was told at that point.

    What was about to be revealed changed everything that morning and for me forever.

    On arrival it was explained that over night two infants had been attacked by a fox whilst in their cots and had been taken to hospital.

    The first task was to search the entire property to ensure that the fox was not still hiding within.

    After establishing that the property was not being treated as a crime scene it was decided to clean the twins cots and surrounding furniture/carpets with anti bacteria cleaner as best as possible and place the mattresses and sheets into black bin bags for disposal.

    It would of been to traumatic for the family to return to the property and undertake such a task.

    I will never forget the traumatic scene layed before me and the attending Officer's.

    It was at this point instruction and authorisation was given to place fox traps in the rear of the property as it was deemed necessary to monitor over familiar fox activity coming into the fairly secure and secluded back garden.

    This was an important task to undertake due in order to cancel out the possibilities of disease in the area or what may have been transmitted to the twins via their puncture wounds.

    By this time; media and camera crews were positioned outside the property.

     

    Hackney Council were forced to increase the street cleaning duties around the area as news reported emptied tins of cat food around the roads and pavements trying to photograph a fox!!

    There was naturally alot of disbelief and rumours floating around; but it proved that foxes are opportunistic and have a capability with their long, thin, pointed incisor teeth.

    This incident could have been so much worse if it was not for the parents rushing up the stairs having heard the spine chillying screams from the twins.

    I pray that this will NEVER happen again.

    In the summer of 2011 I was called to a building / construction site by a major contractor in Greenwich South London.

    It had been reported that I fox had been seen to be entering a 6th floor flat apartment.

    The site as under construction with all trades working throughout.

    The builder's fixed a piece of ply-board against the door in order to prevent it's escape.

    When I arrived I was given access to the apartment equiped with dog handlers pole and carry cage.

    I inspected the lounge, kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom to find no fox.

    I informed the Site Manager of my findings and he was positive the fox went into this particular apartment.

    I carried out a further inspection of the property this time noticing a hole in the vanity unit where the toilet had yet to be fitted.

    I inserted my portable CCTV camera probe to view the fox hiding within the vanity unit.

    I asked for the assistance of a builder to remove the top of the unit so that I could safely and confidently extract the fox.

    Using my dog handlers pole I managed to place the retractable noose around the neck of the fox and place it in the carry cage.

    Further inspections of the vanity unit uncovered numerous sandwich boxes, fast food containers and a handful of chicken bones.

    To finish the job; all debris was removed and the surrounding area treated with biocide, insecticide and deodourant.

    As this construction site was in the early stages of development I would imagine that this opportunistic fox had been living within the vanity unit of this apartment for the past 4 weeks since fitting and coming out at night in order to scavenge and feed.

    Never under estimate what foxes are capable of doing and where the choose to live.
