A STUNNED householder looked out of her window and spotted seven foxes!

MP Jo Swinson has emphasised easy ways to deter the pesky creatures from gardens after a rise in urban fox sightings.

While foxes do not generally pose any risk to humans, they can damage gardens and harm pets.

The RSPCA advises against feeding foxes and has published a fact-sheet on http://bit.ly/oisPLx

Ms Swinson said: “Foxes can be a real nuisance and with several reports that East Dunbartonshire residents have seen an increasing number of the animals, people should refer to the simple steps the RSPCA recommends.

“The best advice is to avoid feeding foxes so they don’t come back for more and ensure there’s nothing out in the garden that could attract them.”
