EXCLUSIVE: Hackney Council to cull foxes in Clissold Park

foxIt has been brought to Hackney Hives attention, that Hackney Councils Parks Department is to begin the culling of foxes in the coming week. The source who tipped me off wants to remain anonymous, but was concerned about the  secrecy surrounding the culling saying: “There has been no public consultation and employees have been told to keep this information confidential”.

They went on to say: “The increase of foxes in Clissold Park is due to the rubbish bins being full and rubbish left at the side, not something the foxes should be punished for”.

A spokesperson for Hackney Council said: “A number of foxes have moved into the deer enclosure in Clissold Park.
