    And PETA will come after if you harm one of those poor critters. Such nice folks.

    There have also been cases of nonrabid foxes attacking people--one in Binghamton, NY last summer. Predators in small places with lack of natural prey will turn to almost anything for food.

    The attacks in NJ were from non rabid habituated animals. They regarded the children as food.
