I have no idea why I have suddenly had this fear of foxes. I don't know what it is about them, but I have never been so scared of anything in my life. The first time I realised I had a fear was a month a go. I was lying in bed on my laptop at around 11pm and all of a sudden, this fox started making the most disturbing noise ever. This sudden rush of emotion came over me and I was shaking in fear, covering my ears and crying my eyes out and it's not like me what so ever. My sister had to make sure I was alright. It was the weirdest thing. A couple of days a go, I was looking around some old abandoned buildings with my two friends and we heard this bang on top of the metal roof, and all of a sudden, this scrawny fox jumped down. It was daylight as well. I literally screamed, turned around and ran to my friend. I was in tears and she had to hold me for what seemed like hours. I couldn't seem to let go of her and she had to drag me away. It was almost like I couldn't walk by myself. My legs just went, like jelly. I'm dreading the next time I hear or see a fox and I need help. I don't understand where this fear came from and I hate it.

My fear began after a nightmare in which a group of foxes killed my whole family then started to torture me. This dream happened every night for about a month when I was around 11. I have no idea where the dream came from and I am still terrified of them! (6 years on) luckily I live on a island which is fox free but dreading moving to a city this year in fear I will see them.....

Phobia of foxes
by: Anonymous

I have a phobia of foxes- always have, it's horrible. I don't know why i am scared of them but when I walk home late from school and see one I end up with my heart beating so hard that it feels like it's going to pop out of my chest and then usually 9 times out of 10 i end up running away from the fox whilst crying my eyes out! :s I'm 14 now and seriously nobody understands how bad my phobia is ... not nice .... is there a name for this phobia? Or is it just irrational?

I get eaten by them
by: Anonymous

My fear started recently, I had a dream about walking down my street and a fox jumping out and killing me, this happened about 4 times.
I looked up what being eaten by an animal in my dream means and apparently I'll be mugged.
but also now I'm afraid of foxes more signs of them are appearing and I seem to walk past one regularly as well as people who look threatening being called fox. Freaky

I have a HUGE fear of foxes that im not sure of where it came from. The foxy bingo ad drives me tears and sweats..
I have dreams about giant foxes looking through my window and this has been going on for years. I am now 16 and the fear hasn't gone away and I have no idea what it is called or whether there is a cure.

Phobia of Foxes
by: April

I've been scared of foxes since I was about 4 years old and I know why. I used to have really bad eczema and my dad took me into the garden at night as I was very hot, and I heard my neighbour/friends guinea pigs being eaten by a fox. I then saw it jump over the fence with a guinea pig in its mouth. A few years later I saw a dark shaddow walking along the tops of the garages behind our house that I presumed was a fox. Being very young it seemed huge to me. I can't watch foxes on tv and we have since moved to norfolk which is terrible for my phobia as I see them all the time. Its got to the point where my brain blocks out me seeing them sometimes but if I do see them I go clammy and feel sick with terror. I get laughed at all the time for it.

Me Too
by: Suzy

I too have a fear/phobia of foxes. I used to dream about fox/wolf man and it was a recurring nightmare. I used to be able to smell the creature in my dreams.

I think this is where mine stems from but also waking up alot at my aunts and seeing a fox on the lawn staring up at my window.

So you are not alone.
