    (NOTE: I'm only including half of the article, as the rest is definitely political; that can be said for another thread in PRSI).

    Finally, some Fox News we all can enjoy. ;)

    Immediately after Cameron's press conference, the reporters caught up with the fox to ask him a few questions. One of the reporters asked how the fox felt after his morning run, in which the fox replied, "I'm Fantastic."

    :D

    there are foxes running around downtown london?

    but if a cat had been giving a police dog the puffy tail the other side of the pond it wouldnt end well.

    Are there also men on horseback and gaggles of hounds running around downtown London?

    They follow the railway lines into town. Plenty of overgrown sidings and parks.

    Cool picture.

    I hadn't spotted this story until you posted it; thanks a lot, urban foxes are fascinating and a face-off between a cat and a dog is always a tale worth recording and telling.

    There's even a fox ghetto where police don't go for fear of being attacked, just outside Lewisham.

    Poor reporting. Larry is not the PM's cat, he belongs to Number 10, he is Chief Mouser :D

    I saw a documentary recently about foxes that mentioned the prevalence of "urban foxes" in England. It was very interesting.

    The picture with the Fox looks doctored somethow. The front paws are not in a natural position compared with the hind ones. Not that it is uncommon to see foxes in London.
