There are times when I think that people have been much the same throughout history but with different clothes and standards of hygiene. Then I read about something like "fox tossing" and realise that I am very much mistaken. As Ptak notes, one famous fox tossing session in Dresden resulted in the deaths of 687 foxes. How long did it take to catch all those foxes? Was there a plague of them that needed controlling?
