Baby attacked by fox

11/02/13 11:15 CET

A four-week-old baby is recovering after being dragged from his cot by a wild fox which had got into his bedroom in London.

The child was taken to hospital with injuries to his hand where doctors were able to re-attach a severed finger.

The animal is thought to have entered the house through an open back door at the home in Bromley, south east London.

The baby is said to be recovering well.

London mayor Boris Johnson called for action by local council leaders to address the “growing menace” of urban foxes in Britain’s capital.
