Here, Arab Strap's Aidan Moffat recounts the story of how once British foxes started getting hunted, they moved into the cities from the countryside, but the urban population saw them as "scruffy scrounging parasites" rather than wily predators.
Moffat explained to Stereogum
he found inspiration for the song after a small family of foxes started wandering around near his flat. He decided to learn more about them and read Lucy Jones' book, Foxes Unearthed
, about Britain's complex relationship with the cunning canines.
