Fergus Fox’s bonce is missing

SPL bottom side Falkirk have suffered a further blow after it emerged that the head of their mascot has been stolen. The furry head of Fergus Fox – valued at about £1,000 – was stolen from the club’s Westfield Stadium in August, but the crime has only recently been reported to police.

A Central Scotland Police spokeswoman said: “The theft of the large fox costume head has only recently come to light. If anybody has seen anything suspicious, they should contact us.”

Fergus was unveiled as the Bairns’ first ever mascot in 2006.

Club spokesman Keith Hogg said: “Fergus has been with us for over three years. Everyone’s concerned as to where he’s disappeared to. He’s an important part of the club.”

So if you spot a big furry fox’s head, remember to contact the police.
