messageDead fox over Greendale
Posted by pixie_jem 11 June, 2019 15:10

Hi all,

I found a decapitated fox over Greendale this morning. Just a heads up as my dogs were extremely interested in it and I had to drag them away. It's over the bit that's really overgrown so easily avoided. Quite a horrific sight. Can't think what would've done that to it.

😢😞

You should probably report it to SNARL (http://www.snarl.org.uk/) as it could be linked to the Croydon cat killer.. very sad

I was up at 5am this morning and looked out our window to see a fix running along Wanley road with what I thought might have been a cat in its mouth...it was huge with a long tail but I couldnít see well enough to really confirm. Maybe it was another fox and perhaps they had been fighting or something? There are a huge amount of them that live in the green space.

Is that the mythical human that kills cats and other small to medium sized mammals, or just someone's dog? Or perhaps a car that hit it...

Probably better to tell the council.

This fox had been dead a while judging by the decomposition.

Itís a long way from a road and doesnít look like itís got any bite wounds but itís head is missing and itís been partially skinned. Not sure what would cause these injuries but itís a bit alarming and definitely sad as it was a lovely fox that I often saw while walking my dog.

I have also notified the council.

I noticed the partial skinning too.

I have been in touch with SNARL and they asked me to take more photos today (a thoroughly unpleasant job) I have sent them the photos and they will take a look and decide if they need to investigate further.

There is nothing mythical about the person killing cats and small mammals.
