While I would certainly like to believe Don Camby's rant about a hoax
regarding foxes in Tasmania, I would treat his rant with a great deal more
scepticism. His claims are (at the very least) no better substantiated than
the fox sightings themselves. Remarks about "ex tree hugging ferals most
likely on a Public Service empire building exercise" only make me wonder
what his agenda really is. On whose business exactly was he searching for
foxes and investigating sightings?

Note also the fact that the letter is both unsigned and from a Yahoo!

Cheers, AS
