The quick brown fox

a
 

Sir, – For years, a skulk of foxes has enjoyed a sheltered den on the north bank of the Dodder river between Dodder Park and Westbourne Road. The foxes have enjoyed friendly relations with their neighbours. That is until last Saturday at daybreak, when on checking to see if The Irish Times had been delivered, I watched in fascination as a large and well-fed fox sauntered out the gate with The Irish Times wedged between his jaws. – Yours, etc,
