The home of Nick and Pauline Koupparris, where their 9 month old twins were mauled by a fox, has been given police protection, following online threats from animal activists and hostile reactions on internet forums.
Since the attack on 5th June, four foxes have been trapped and killed in the Koupparris’s back garden, which appears to have further incensed their detractors.
Scotland Yard said there were “no specific threats” but officers were there on general duties and were keeping an eye on the family. A Met source added: “We are aware that there is a potential threat.”
Wild accusations of the parents being fame hungry, and even doubts about a fox attacking the babies, have run rife and a Facebook page called “Pauline Koupparis is a lying b****”, was set up but has been taken down
Several years ago I resigned from my job, stored most of my belongings in my in-law's basement, and boarded a transatlantic flight with my husband.
Life in London has been interesting to say the least. I miss ice tea and Red Lobster, watching hockey and eating honey garlic wings.
I love music, literature, and good food. I am proud to be a woman, but I can't stand crazy feminists. I love politics - but do not subscribe to any particular party or politician (although there are some I like more than others). It's nice when people take me seriously - but I don't need others to validate my opinions. Fun and smart are not mutually exclusive. I firmly believe that knowledge is power.
