    We need to protect ourselves now! There is a new crime group out there attacking people in broad daylight. These bold thieves randomly strike and seem to prefer women as victims.
    We need more law enforcement! We need more neighborhood watches. What will happen to our children if this continues?!

    A mother-of-two in South East London was recently the victim of a bold mugging by a crafty animal as she walked home from a grocery store.
    According to the Bexley Council, 46-year-old Louisa Power was carrying a bag of groceries home in Sidcup on Monday, when a wily fox appeared on the footpath in front of her and refused to move.

    Power did her best to ignore the bushy-tailed creature and stepped around him as she continued down the path. Undeterred, the fox shuffled cautiously behind her and sniffed the grocery bag she was carrying.
    "I used my handbag to try and shoo it away, but as I looked around, it was on my heel snarling at me; I ran away," Power told Metro UK.

    The red-pawed marauder jumped up as Power attempted to make her getaway and grabbed her grocery bag from her hands. Booty in paw, the fox quickly turned tail and ran, she said.
    Power told the News Shopper that the four-legged fiend made off with her apples and spring onions. She was, however, able to retrieve a few scant items that fell out of the bag when the cunning vermin made his escape.
    "It was unbelievable, the audacity of that fox," Power told the International Business Times.

    Perhaps Power's mugger is in cahoots with the lovable bandit that accosted a woman's purse in Burgess Hill last month. In that case the suspect--described by The Argus as 1 foot high, “with pointed ears, hairy and red"—made off with 35-year-old Anna Clark's handbag.
    "We were in the car park and he looked at me for a few seconds before letting out this feeble yelp. Next thing I knew he had my wife's handbag in his mouth and was running towards the bushes," Clark's husband, Jeremy Clark, 38, told The Argus.

    That fox thief, however, apparently suffered immediate pangs of guilt. According to the Clarks the fox came back a few minutes later and dropped the bag at their feet.
    "I have no idea why. We couldn't believe it," Jeremy Clark said.
    In both cases the furry felons have eluded capture and are still on the lam.

    like a fox on the run

    (Chorus)
    She walks through the corn leadin' down to the river
    Her hair shone like gold in the hot mornin' sun
    She took all the love that a poor boy could give her
    And left me to die like a fox on the run
    Like a fox, like a fox, like a fox on the run

    Now everybody knows the reason for my fall
    A woman tempted me down in Paradise Hall
    This woman tempted me and she took me for a ride
    Like a lonely fox, boys, I need a place to hide

    (Chorus)

    Oh, we'll drink a glass of wine, boys, to purify our soul
    We'll talk about the world and the friends we used to know
    I see a string of girls who have put me on before
    The game is nearly over and the hounds are at the door

    (Chorus)
