    How about going back to see if you can find it and put it out of its misery

    Its probably dead by now.
    Well hopefully, for its sake. It did not look too hot.
    I am sure if johngryphon had have chance he would have done the right thing.
    Well done for getting the pic,

    I've shot foxes with various injuries that have healed even though it might have looked bad at the time it happened, I shot this dog fox a couple of years ago, it looked like he'd been snared but freed himself. The wounds had healed pretty well, not sure how much he could see but he was in great condition otherwise and not lacking in weight

    I'll bet that was not a snare, more likely a catering size bean tin or similar, all the same looks nasty.
    As much as I hate them, I do respect them.

    The fox was shot in the middle of nowhere and doubt it was a tin, the underside of the jaw was cut to the bone through the soft tissue as you would expect from a snare in this situation.
