Red Fox with Tundra Swan


This Red Fox was working mightily to drag this Swan (I think) back to his den. It was pretty huge and the fox struggled, and took a break to catch its breath more than once.

Just back from Linen 'n Things?

Red Fox

I suspect that the fox either did the kill earlier and went back to fetch it when I found him, or he stumbled upon the bird and claimed it for himself.

Bombay Hook is very well know for Foxes, there's a lot of them there and due to human feedings (a crime) they are not fearful and usually don't run away from people/photographers. On more than one occassion I've felt that a fox was coming too close and had to get them to back off a little.
