Fox snaffles sausages

Posted by Graeme Lyons , Monday 15 November 2010 18:32

I was just walking back from a meeting when I spotted a family transfixed by something in the road. The street was quite busy as it was 5.45 pm, so I was quite surprised to see it was a Fox. The family told me they had disturbed it with a string of sausages, which it had dropped, but the greedy bugger didn't want to leave its feast behind. I got my camera out and hung back with the family and managed this shot (it was disturbed by a car). It crisscrossed the road waiting for a window of opportunity and then came back and snaffled the sausages and then legged it down the road but my flash didn't go off and I missed the money shot. It amazes  me how bold they are these days and it was really nice to see how excited the kids were at seeing it.

They're really good, these moments.

Less good was when I had to defend children against a young and hungry fox which was trying to get at the chips they were eating out of a paper. Bold, indeed.

@ Lucy, I had that with some starlings a few years ago, trying to eat my sandwiches with me in Crawley's garden next to County mall.
