Contrary to popular belief foxes are not the ferocious killers they are made out to be. Take the one in the video above which I filmed yesterday. This is a very timid animal and pretty much bottom of the food chain at the spot where this film was made. It is constantly bullied by badgers, it's afraid of the buzzards and even the magpies often harass it when it comes out to scavenge for left overs.
It defies belief that people/sadists persecute and hunt these animals for fun. The persecutors often use the term 'vermin control' to give their perversion for blood an air of respectability. Foxes have a hard enough time surviving on the scraps they can scavenge. The people who persecute foxes are amongst the lowest forms of life imaginable in my opinion. Take a look at a person who enjoys killing animals and you are looking at a person who would take equal joy in killing humans should they get the chance. It come as absolutely no surprise to me when I heard that the monster, Mark Bridger who murdered poor little April Jones was an abattoir worker as it takes a certain type of person to work in an abattoir. I am not suggesting for one second that all abattoir workers are potential murderers, but what I am saying is that people who kill animals for enjoyment be they abattoir workers such as Bridger or red coated hooray henrys on horseback hunting foxes, these are the type of people who enjoy the 'thrill of the kill' and therefore deserve to be viewed differently than the rest of the population who have no desire to inflict pain or suffering on living creatures.
