Anger after fox reportedly shot at Sainsbury's store in Crayford

Horrified shoppers have expressed their outrage after a fox was reportedly shot at a supermarket.

Sainsbury's confirmed it has called in "pest control experts" over fears foxes are hanging around one of its stores.

Onlookers took to Twitter to say the animal had been shot after it had fallen foul of a trap set outside the shop in Crayford.

Gemma Molyneux shared her concerns, saying: "It's sickening. So many other options. This fox was most likely helping by hunting mice and rats in the vicinity."

Another asked if there was a fox sanctuary nearby.

A spokesman for Sainsbury's said: "A number of foxes have tried to gain access to the store on several occasions.

"As a food retailer, this presents a health risk to both our colleagues and customers so we consulted pest control experts."
