A BABY girl was been bitten by a fox after it snuck into her family home yesterday — leaving her with horror cuts to her arms and legs.

Little Raeya Boundy had to be treated by paramedics after the urban fox managed to get into her family's Plymouth home.

Photos show how the seven-month-old was left with several puncture wounds on her hands, arms and feet.

Just a day earlier the fox had allegedly killed a neighbour’s pet cat had been seen prowling in the garden of their council house in Honicknowle, on the outskirts of Plymouth, Devon.

The tot’s mum Leanne, 27, was at her sister’s while granddad Darren was looking after her with a friend.

He told today how he tried to chase the fox from their garden after spotting it lurking near their shed around 2pm on Tuesday.

But as he shooed it down the side of the house it ran into the open front door and attacked Raeya.

Full-time carer Darren said: “This fox had been hanging around the back garden and we rang the RSPCA and asked them to get rid of it because it had killed a neighbour’s cat and we were worried that there were kids around.

“I saw it in the garden and went to chase it away. It ran off down the side of the house and I thought I had gone.

"I went back into the house and my mate said I left the front door open. I went to close it and turned around and the fox was in the sitting room attacking little Raeya.

“I grabbed the baby and ran out and my mate grabbed the dog. The fox then ran out the house.

“It was lucky I caught it when I did. It could have ripped her throat out."

South Western Ambulance Service confirmed they had been called to the home, saying the baby girl was treated at the scene in the West Park area just before 2pm.

It is understood the animal had been spotted lurking in the family's garden in the days prior to the attack, with a photograph of the fox since shared on social media.

The baby's auntie said she was later taken to hospital where she received a tetanus injection and a course of antibiotics.

A South Western Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "We attended with a rapid response vehicle. A female patient was treated at the scene for minor injuries."

A RSPCA said: "It's extremely unusual for foxes to attack young children or anyone.

"It's not typical fox behaviour at all. Foxes will come closer to a house if there are food sources.
