A Cororooke mother wants to see better fox control at a Princetown camping ground, after her son woke to a fox biting at his pillow.
Laura Cook said her family of four camped at the Princetown Recreation Reserve last weekend, when eight-year-old Nate Cook woke at 2.30am on Sunday to a fox pulling his pillow from his swag.
“Nate dragged his pillow back in and the fox took off, then he could hear a dog barking from a couple of campsites away,” Ms Cook said.
She said her son then woke her in a distressed state, but she had thought he “might have been having a bad dream” until she saw bite marks and tears on his pillow and swag.
