The wayward fox has taken one of the rabbits. I saw this, the silhouetted form of the fox emerging from behind some trees with something rabbit-looking hanging from its mouth. Moments earlier we were watching the fox cross among the shrubs and shadows, and it stopped to rummage in some bushes... I went out to the area later on and there were definite signs of a struggle in the snow. So it goes.

I do not want to appear callous, I just have to remind myself that this is the way of the world. There had been a rabbit in the fenced part of the yard earlier in the morning and the dog didn't see it right away. I watched it for a bit, standing stock still as The Huntress sniffed about, and then the chase was on. I wonder if this was the same little bunny :o(

*sigh* I even made some bad jokes later, that either the fox would appear dragging a deer next, or vice versa. And then came a trio of hawks, gliding above, and while thinking "Ride of the Valkyries" I imagined them hauling off one of the deer as well.

Sad about the rabbit. I think the one near us was taken by either a coyote, a rat snake, or a hawk. So many things want to eat rabbit!

I love DL Peterson, too. MouseGuard!

Such a gleefully evil fox, yes! And that second one is disturbing, yeah...

Alas poor rabbit, the Thousand hungers always and have sharp teeth. I see the occasional rabbit track in my back yard, but no lapine leavings under the hay rack or in the hay storage lately. Just a vole population boom.
