Thread: unusual fox

  1. #1

    unusual fox


    Got this lady last night. About half of her lower jaw missing and healed. A chubby fox mind you so hadnt struggled much. I wonder if it was shot or something else. I wonder, also, how she was eating?
    Her tongue was intact mind you

    congenital birth defect

    had a collie just like that. (assuming the lower jaw is short and has all teeth)
    its only the incisors and canine that dont meet, rest of the teeth back and sides will crunch away on anything they can get in

    Did she have her front row of teeth? If not, im guessing a previous run in with a terrier to ground?

    All front teeth missing and very rough front edge to jaw.

    Bewsher, how did the collie suckle? lambs etc really struggle

    How about a snare around lower jaw?

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Lambs with undershot jaws can struggle to suckle, although they generally manage ok up to weaning. Once they have to depend on grazing they just go down hill as they just can't manage if te deformity is severe.
    Mild cases may go unnoticed.

    I'd be guessing a run in with a terrier to ground as well. Second guess would be a poorly placed bullet.
