There was a new article about a fox of unusual size that was trapped and killed. The fox is suspected of eating a pet cat, so the man of the house got a trap and took care of the predator problem.
The fact that the fox grew so large points out that it had become a very dominant predator that has learned to get nice easy meals. Pets. Dog Food. Or food that people left out to feed the cute little wild critters. All things that fox don’t normally eat. It’s become used to be so close to humans. This leads to it becoming less fearful of humans… which leads to stupid humans holding out there hands like they are in some Disney Cartoon and all the sudden the stupid human is bitten and infected with some sort of disease that is now a problem of their nationalized health care system so the whole nation has to pay for the person’s stupidity.
But that’s not the problem… the problem I see here is in the Comment Section. You can tell everything you need to know about a Paper’s (or Blogs) readership and intended audience by the comments. But not just the comments, but the Voting on the Comments. Those remarks that give support to the culling of the predator are buried in negative feedback. All the while those comments that take moral umbrage at the killing of the creature get the most “Thumbs Up”. And then they applaud comments about how wrong it is that a child was photographed with the huge fox. And worst yet – The Child was SMILING! How barbaric! How horrid! Someone needs to take that kid away so he can be properly reconditioned!
That is why the UK is a Nation of Pansies. Come on England! You are the Nation that gave us Churchill, The Super Marine Spitfire, TVR, and music with balls… How sad you have become!
