Was a giant fox sent to prey on the children of Thebes to punish them for a national crime? The fox was famous for being uncatchable. Creon king of Thebes set Amphitryon, (previously king of Troezen, or perhaps a general of Electryon, who had accidently killed Electryon King of Mycenae, and had fled to Thebes for protection after he was banished.) the impossible task of ridding Thebes of the Vixen. Amphitryon hoped to achieve this by borrowing Laelaps the hunting hound famous for never failing to catch its prey. See SV. File, 'Heracles the Birth and other myths, under the section of Electryon.
