Chew Toy!

yesterday I captured the following sequence as my local fox used this poor little shrew as a chew toy!

Yesterday once again I decided to take a little walk down to my fox location to see if I could capture any different fox poses. When she appeared she immediately started stalking….Following her she finally managed to capture this little shrew however instead of eating it she spent the next quarter of an hour playing with it like a chew toy! She would chuck it in the air…watch it..then chase after it again. The poor shrew was thrown about countless times but in the end managed to get away!! Hopefully on the next visit i will be able to whiteness her hunting again and get a few better images of this fantastic behaviour.
