There is a fox that wanders around Millfield near Aldi.

What animal in this area eats cats? 😆😆😆
Big dogs? Can a fox attack a cat?
Dogs might kill a cat but a fox will not go near them.
I saw a fox run across the new road to Ryhope with a rabbit in its mouth but I suspect that's about their limit.

A fox? Don't recall ever seeing a fox mooching around Sunderland

Nah, in the deepest urban jungle of Hendon. Foxes are everywhere down here. You see them wandering around the streets and in gardens all the time but only late on.

They wander around the city centre and there's a friendly one just behind the City Hall.
It lets you get reasonably close because the workers feed it every night.
I do have a video of this as well and it was only about 10 feet away, it does tend to keep a little distance.
To be honest, though, I doubt if foxes will attack a pussycat.

Foxes are soft as clarts and usually run away before you even see them.

I know the place where the fox runs whenever it's startled in Millfield.

I'd hate to meet one so thank the lord they do run away.

Trust me, you will probably not meet one deliberately.
