Fox Attacks Baby

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

One-month-old Denny Crawley was brutally savaged by a fox, and is now recovering in hospital.  Hayley Crawley, 28, mum to Denny, was horrified at the sight of her son who had his finger torn in the attack

bbIt was reported that the fox crept into the mother’s bedroom, where Denny was having a nap, and then it snatched him by his jaw, which is now severely cut and wounded .

Baby Denny had to have immediate treatment, as his finger was fully torn off. The delicate three-hour operation to attach his finger was successful and a spokeswoman for the Evelina Children’s Hospital confirmed he had been moved from the high dependency unit into a ward.

An RSPCA spokeswoman said it was extremely unusual for foxes to attack people, and that the animal would only do so if it was afraid.

London Mayor Boris Johnson said: “Foxes may appear cuddly and romantic but foxes are also a pest and a menace, particularly in our cities.”
