Foxes are known to transmit diseases to both pets and humans such as parasites (Internal & External), damage property, create a health & safety risk by fouling and urinating.
Local councils always shy away from this issue due to varying ‘public opinion’.
Maybe they just don’t want to allocate the money for such a serious issue.
The idea of rounding up urban foxes and ‘dumping’ them elsewhere is ridiculous.
Professional control is important in order that the public do not start to take the matter into their own hands and try to poison or adopt other unthinkable measures to rid these pests from their property.
