The city of London has many things to offer to its habitats but this piece of incident is truly incredible. Scaling new heights in life is not an easy task, especially if you are the urbanite from London. Surprisingly, this posed no threat to the fox who find the city as the best place to have a nice sleep.
Although, urban foxes have earned a bad name of being notorious opportunists- but this particular incident crossed that benchmark too. Residents of Notting Hill in London, were taken aback by the sudden turn of event when they spotted one fox was taking a nap on the second-floor window sill of a house in Elgin Crescent.
The house is owned by Rachel Johnson, the author, the editor and sister of London Mayor Boris Johnson. Surprised by the action and behavior of the fox, people of this Tory stronghold area were flocked to watch the wonder and American comedian Ruby Wax was among them.
Generally, foxes are comfortable loitering in the nights but this canine was clearly confident in its affluent surrounding and unperturbed by the sudden flow of attention. It seemed that the animal found a secured and comfortable home in the heart of the capital.
Ms Rachel Johnson was the only one who took the photograph of that fox. According to Ms Johnson, “It must have got up via the scaffolding on the house next door.”
Ms Rachel was relieved by the fact that nobody tried to shoot the fox. She also said, “It was rather a sitting duck there on the ledge.” And continued, ‘There are lots of them in the neighbourhood, always in the gardens – they seem to own the place. But when I saw this one it was hard to feel the same sense of rage.”
