On our way down to the school bus at 10 to seven this morning, my daughter and I came upon a dead fox (Vulpes vulpes). We had seen an adult running through our yard a week ago; the dead one was much smaller.

There was no blood and when I touched the cadaver with my foot, it wasn't stiff yet. Our road is not much wider than a driveway and gets very little traffic. My guess is that the guy who delivers the Times hit the fox maybe 20 minutes before we saw it.
