Are foxes dangerous

to humans?

Lamping is a loose term that covers a number of different activities. However, they all take place at night and they all result in the murder of wildlife in the British countryside.

Typically, no.  Foxes are not dangerous to humans and do not attack humans.  However, if a fox is captured or handled then the fox will defend itself and this could result in a human being bitten.

There have been occasions where foxes enter homes (for food and/or shelter), if they feel cornered or trapped, they could bite a human in defence – but most often than not, a fox will naturally flee rather than fight.
