Fox Kills Snake and Leaves Final Insult
I found this at the bottom of our garden early yesterday morning. It is a 2-foot (mature) female Grass Snake.
I was not until I processed the images that I saw the two small wounds. The fox left a faecal pellet as a final comment.
We get foxes in our garden every day/night. Currently, there are two (sisters?) vixens with two cubs of different ages, so they would be protective towards them.
We used to get more snakes a couple of decades ago. Now were are getting more foxes.
The stereo is crosseye.
