A foxy encounter

We recently received an interesting photo from one of our readers, Sandy Proudfoot.  Her nephew-in-law Michael and a friend were driving along Pennorth Dr. a few days ago when they saw a fox with a hen in its mouth.

“Don’t know where the chicken came from but it was a big one… so big the fox had to stop every 50 feet or so to re-adjust his grip. My friend and I were on the way back from town and I turned onto Pennorth Rd. when we saw it.  [My friend] has an Iphone so rolled down his window and we tried from a distance for a picture with no luck. Decided we would try to drive by the fox for a close up shot. Fox happened to stop to shift his load and we stopped beside him and friend got a great picture. The fox stopped because he was not going to give up his meal. He has a den somewhere in the area near the end of Pennorth. Two years ago we had a fox living under our neighbour’s shed…so very exciting!”
