Stoat versus Fox.

A very noisy but distant stand off between a Stoat and Fox this morning in Michel Dean. The fox actually backed off albeit reluctantly. The photo’s are heavily cropped (photographer speak for crap) but you get the general idea. At one point I thought the Fox had the Stoat in it’s mouth but looking at the photo’s it’s clear the Stoat had hold of the Fox by it’s face! Bold little things Stoats, but when you’re favoured meal (a Rabbit) is twice your body weight you’ve probably got some pluck.

  1. I’ve seen a fight before on a BBC doc. They are little but mighty. Pure stamina.
