A three-year-old Brighton boy is recovering after being attacked by a fox in the grounds of Dorothy Stringer High School in Brighton, the Sun reports.

The boy was at a party at the Brighton school on Saturday when he was bitten by the creature after yanking its tail.

He was taken to hospital where he was treated for bite and scratch wounds.

A police spokesman told the Sun: “The tail of an animal was poking out from a building and the child has apparently grabbed it.

“The animal turned round and bit the child and ran off.”

It’s reported the fox had been living underneath a raised classroom for about a year. The RSPCA was called after Saturday’s attack, but could not trap it.

Two weeks ago, nine-month-old twins Isabella and Lola Koupparis were badly injured after a suspected fox attack in London.
