Foxes are small. They don't prey on cats and dogs. Of course, they will defend themselves if necessary. Another fear is often rabies, which very seldom occurs in a fox. If a fox doesn't look healthy, its much more likely to be mange which appears similar.
Foxes have a very varied diet, Urban foxes eat earthworms, insects, fruit and vegetables and a wide variety of both domestic wild birds and mammals. Insects include large numbers of beetles, cut worms (the larvae of noctuid moths, which they get off lawns on wet nights), and both larval and adult craneflies. Most of the birds they eat are feral pigeons and small garden birds, and the most frequently eaten mammals are generally field voles, abundant on allotments, railway lines and other grassy areas. So urban foxes really do have a good varied diet.
Obviously it is your right to call animal control if you wished, I just wanted to present you with some facts to consider.
