In defence of Brer Fox

A friend rang with computer troubles, but incidentally told us that the family rabbits had been killed by a fox. He then called the fox something I can’t repeat on a family website.

But this friend eats meat, so in what sense is the fox any more a – well, what he called it – than he is? It just gets its food in a more direct fashion. How could the fox know that the rabbits were much loved family pets?
