— Foxes are causing controversy in the Preston neighborhood off Davis Drive in Cary.

Residents said the animals have been chasing people and attacking dogs.

One resident decided to hire a wildlife maintenance agent to trap the animals. Other residents oppose that method because the foxes will be put down when they're caught.

The neighborhood held a meeting on the issue Thursday night.

Some residents said they are taking their own safety precautions.

"I have mace, and I have a large flashlight," resident Susan Desse said.
