Mum puts brakes on fox attacks
A MUM has been forced to FENCE IN her car to stop it being attacked – by FOXES.
Stunned Jeanna Emerson, 55, thought pranksters were targeting her Peugeot when the brake cables were cut TWICE in just two weeks.
And she was shocked when police forensic experts revealed the culprits were foxes.
Animal experts told Mrs Emerson that foxes like the sweet taste of brake fluid and are creatures of habit – causing them to attack her vehicle six times.
The mother, from Lancing, West Sussex, tried parking the car in a different spot but the foxes returned.
She now protects her car by wrapping chicken wire around it every time she parks.
Mrs Emerson said: “There are often three or four of them sitting there looking at it but they don’t know what to do now.
“They have become domesticated and do not fear humans.”
