My two favorite animals, snakes and foxes are unfortunately animals that get a lot of hate, especially snakes. At least foxes are seen cute and fluffy by others (they are! ), however snakes are pretty much universally feared and hated.
People can have their opinions, and don't have to like them, but it would be better to give both respect. They both can be beautiful creatures, and don't seek out to attack people or pets.
Foxes get a bad reputation because of their predatory skills, but are generally harmless to people.They are also unfortunately considered pests too, but they (along with snakes) keep other animals that interfere thselves. (I refuse to call any animal a pest).
Snakes are viewed and scary, evil, and dangerous. I understand fears of them as I have my own fears, and there are many deadly snakes, but not all of them are. Snakes are most certainly not "evil" either, they don't even have the capability to feel malice.
What I am trying to say is harming these beautiful animals is simply not justified however much you don't like them. Try to understand, and if you still are afraid or don't like them just leave them alone. They don't deserve to be attacked just because you don't like them.
