This is one hungry fox.

The animal was snapped with its head buried in the snow after jumping 3ft in the air while hunting a vole.

Oh, yeah, they'll do that. With their ears they can hear the rodents deep in the snow.

Here is a little fox who is very lucky. His dinner search didn't go so well.

Fairly common behavior among foxes in winter. They do especially well if they happen to be facing north...

Cool. I'm glad they helped him.

I just wish people would learn to hold their phone like a camera when they're using it as one.

In my area a lot of foxes. They often go out on the highway and under the wheels of cars die. In the past year, one fox settled in the courtyard of high school. Keep man to himself.this summer I saw five dead fox on the road.
