15st man ‘mugged by fox’ for garlic breadMarch 8th, 2012 - 9:59 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
London, Mar 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A 29-year-old man has narrated how a fox literally mugged him. Seb Baker told reporters that he had gone shopping but met the creature while returning with his purchase.
According to him, the fox cornered him and had him surrender his garlic bread. Baker, who weighs 15 stones, told The Sun that his attempts to frighten the animal failed as it kept watching the shopping bags that he was holding.
“I turned down an alley, but when I looked round I saw it running towards me. I stopped, thinking it would run off. But the fox started circling me and then jumped up, trying to grab my shopping bag… Eventually I opened the bag and gave it the garlic loaf. He grabbed it and ran off.”
Baker admitted that he got frightened and tried to run away at a point but got the idea to dash the animal something from his shopping bag. The incident happened on Monday with Baker recalling that he had seen the fox at the neighborhood just moments earlier. The attack took place at Orpington, Kent.
Wildlife experts in the United Kingdom say foxes are getting bolder with each day. The creatures are becoming urbanized and officials say they seem to have acquired a taste for urban food.
