I was out last night lamping with the .243 when I came across this fox who appeared to be a bit odd.....there was something about his gait which indicated ill health and so I shot him cleanly through the chest from about 50yds. On closer inspection he appeared entirely healthy and normal except for a large hole in the top of his head! looked/smelt like it was infected.......had yellow/green puss last night but this morning when I went to take the picture the flies had cleaned it up. My guess is: headshot gone wrong (.22lr/17hmr?)
what do you think?
