British Foxes Get Revenge For Centuries of Fox Hunting, Wreck Olympic Shooting Venue

Fox hunting has been a distinguished sport in the British Isles since the sixteenth century.

Apparently, the foxes are fed up.

Foxes attacked an Olympic shooting facility in London’s Woolwich district during a test event to prepare for this summer’s London Olympics.

According to the BBC, “The animals have chewed cables, wrecked microphones, and soiled the podium area at the event . . . . They have evaded capture—or worse—even though more than 800 of the world’s finest shooters are present.”

Olympic organizers built the Woolwich facility, known affectionately as “Teletubby land,” in the middle of a fox habitat.

“They lived here before we created the venue so, at night, they’re getting into some of our enclosures, going around and chewing things,” says Peter Underhill, who is in charge of shooting events for the 2012 games. “We have to live with the foxes. We have guards here at night that go around and, if need be, shoo them away.”
