Amanda Dodds, a 45 year-old secreatary from Camden in London, is the latest casualty of the fox attacks which have suddenly started occurring across the country.
Dodds claims that a small urban fox had decided to move-up from ripping-open bin liners and stealing old food and had progressed to sophisticated criminal techniques culminating in her being pick-pocketed whilst having an afternoon snooze during which £250 went missing, and later that evening being the victim of a burglary during which her grantmother's Ainsley china tea service was stolen from a locked display cabinet.
'They really are cunning creatures' says Miss Dodds 'Only last week they were content to come into people's houses and bite the occupants, but now all-of-a-sudden that's below them and they now want to steal money and peddle prized possessions, which can then be used to buy cooked chickens from the rotisserie counter at Tesco. In retrospect I should have recognised that the poodle face mask it was wearing did not match-up against its red fur.'
The Daily Mail is expected to run a headline tomorrow of 'Immigrant foxes on benefits burgle defenceless British lady' and hopes that a national campaign can be established against other similar animals 'Particularly those killer bees flying across the channel from froggie-land.'
