High rises for orange dogs

High rise tower blocks such as this were supposed to provide much-needed housing in overcrowded cities. Until now, the option of living in a high rise extended only to humans.

According to the BBC, 40-feet towers could be built above Leeds' canals to provide a habitat to the city's foxes, birds and bats.

The towers, which would be constructed from recycled materials, hope to reverse the decline of urban wildlife.

Let's hope they can survive the weather - only today a block o'flats was damaged by a lightning strike in north London.

Mildly interesting fact: everyone knows that female foxes are vixens, but few realise that males are known as dog foxes.
