Regarding the incident of foxes killing chickens in front of children (Friday’s Oxford Mail).

I really question if this is the full story.

Foxes are very timid creatures and very wary of humans. As for the chickens, it is up to the owner to protect them sufficiently – not to blame the fox.

It appears that the fox only took advantage of the owner’s stupidity. It’s what foxes do.
