An old friend returns

April 17, 2010

Remember Minty? The fox that occasionally wonders into my garden? Well, after a few months of just seeing him at night (and not having my camera ready) I spotted him again today near our pond.

He was there for some time pushing the dirt around with his nose and bathing in the warmth of the sun. As I continued to watch him I realised what he was doing… burying a rabbit.

I had never considered that foxes would bury their food and am totally puzzled by the whole thing to be honest, if anyone has any theories or knows why I’m all ears!

    He’s having an identity crisis and now believes he’s a squirrel?

    It’s Minty! No idea why he would be burying food though… maybe you have a fridge underneath your garden that noone knows about except Minty?
